Font de la Juliana (The Fountain of Juliana)

On the way from Arbeca to Juneda one finds another interesting remnant of the local history. Font de la Juliana (The fountain of Juliana) was built between the 15th and 16th centuries, however, it possibly takes its origin in Roman times. A fountain was excavated in a clay-pit substratum, and water gushes out nonstop sidelong. The arched chamber with a splendid stone vault, besides keeping the water clean, reduces evaporation and ensures its storage. This manmade fountain tank  is a reflection of the times, when water was a scarce resource, and it took great efforts to ensure its consistent supply. The stonecutters' work has been done with  the greatest care. The drainage works have allowed the fountain to be recovered and to ensure its conservation.
