Huge public fountain perhaps 20’ in diameter at base, central decorated tower rising a good 20’ above with nearly life size figures; lion heads around edge of bottom, where water spurts out into a stone washing area; here a peasant woman does her laundry; behind the fountain is a Romanesque church; water draws out of the stone washing enclosure to run along the ground.
