Salto del Agua Fountain

Located in the middle of a frenetic crossing of avenues, and giving name to a nearby subway station, the Salto del Agua Fountain is a refined sculptural example of the colonial era and a vestige of times past in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the Mexico City.

Built as part of the aqueduct works of Santa Fe and Chapultepec, one of which supplied water to Mexico City during the virreinal era, the Fuente del Salto del Agua was located at the end of that aqueduct on the site it currently occupies

And that it was one of the points from where it was supplied of the vital liquid of the aqueduct to the population of the New Spain capital.
