For several reasons, this place is one of the most important in the town of Sant Llorenc.
The well, was during the Middle Ages the only water supply in the town.
Later on, it was the center stage of the novel “Flower Cards”, by local rector, Salvador Galmés.
The water fountain here, has probably been around for longer than we know, but was first documented in the mid-seventeenth century.
The well was expanded in 1918, as the city council agreed on constructing a mill to lead the dirty water into the river. This period saw a high amount of malaria infections from the dirty water. In 1931, the mill was replaced by a pump.
In 2005, a memorial plate was installed, with an excerpt of the “Flower Cards” novel, in honor of Salvador Galmés.
