Address: C/ La Fuente
A fountain was built in what was then the outskirts of the town, which after being re-modelled in the time of Joanna I, was called the Fountain of the Lions.
This fountain, surrounded by stone benches, became a popular place of recreation, which years later led to the construction of the adjoining promenade or boulevard.
It was in the 1920s, under the influence of the 1929 Ibero-American Exhibition held in Seville, that the old promenade was renovated and named after the Spanish king, becoming the “Alameda – “promenade” – de Alfonso XIII”.
Points of interest
The fountain was known as the “Plaza de Abajo” in contrast to the highest part of the walled town, known as the “Plaza de Arriba” or the “San Fernando” square.
The Alameda was re-modelled and renovated with the use of exposed bricks, tiles, wrought iron… giving it the appearance it has today, Mudejar- styled with certain Baroque elements so typical of that period.
