Operators of the Municipal Water Service have restored a few days ago the operation of the traditional and emblematic Fuente de San Pedro, located next to the Arch of the Ollerías, in order to offer a more attractive in this emblematic place in the outskirts of the urban area , according to the council of the branch, Antonia Camacho.
The workers have proceeded to the cleaning and untangling of the conduction that serves to the source of water not potable from the vault of the arc, and that was obstructed by plastics, weeds and litter.
This fountain is located next to the aqueduct, also called arch of San Pedro or of the Rambla, and that was constructed by totanero Pedro de Mora Cánovas in 1753 and designed by Silvestre Martínez.
It is located bordering the old area of â€‹â€‹the Ollerías, where in the old time most of the potteries of Totana were located.
Its function was to allow the arrival of water from the spring of La Carrasca, in Sierra Espuña, to the source of Juan de Uzeta, in the current plaza of the Constitution.
