From Review : El corazon of Praca da Republica
Plaza y fuente
It was built, or at least completed in 1559, being the work of the mason master João Lopes "the old man", the same man who some years earlier built the Caminha fountain and, most likely, some of the similar fountains that can be found in Galician cities such as Pontevedra . It was for several centuries the drinking water supply point for the population of Viennese and, due to its monumentality and location, one of the urban references of the city.
