Ancient Fountains

Go to my journey


In the heart of Piegaro, heading along the road that during the medieval period led from Porta Perugina to the lowest part of the hill, it is possible to reach the Fonte medievale (Medieval Fountain), an important construction dating back to the period between the 12th and 13th centuries.

The ancient fountains are located next to the Chiesa della Madonna della Crocetta, precisely below the small staircase, and once had a dual function serving both the inhabitants and livestock; women at the time went to the fountains to wash clothing, but the waters were also used for drinking by  animals, which travelled long distances to return to the stables located inside the castle and after grazing down in the valley during the day .

The water is still drinkable and the fountains’ water troughs, which have recently been restored, are still in excellent condition.
