Chafariz de El-Rei

Chafariz de El-Rei

Chafariz de El-Rei the royal fountain, is the oldest city spring and the first public fountain in Lisbon. You will come across it while walking from Campo das Cebolas towards the Museu do Fado.

It was built in the 13th century using the excellent waters of the Alfama slope. Thanks to King D. Dinis it was expanded, and by the order of King D. João II in 1487, the water flowed to the fountain in pipes to supply drinking water to ships setting off for commercial purposes and on discovery expeditions.

In its heyday, Chafariz de El-Rei even had nine working nozzles, each with a different purpose: one for filling all kinds of jugs and barrels, others only for specific social groups (including one for sailors!).

The present façade dates from 1864, ornaments and urns create a classical composition. Unfortunately, the fountain has been closed for a long time. The Hotel Palacete do Chafariz de El Rei is located above it.
