L’antica fonte sotterranea di Borgomaro
The Fontana Vecchia of Borgomaro was much appreciated in summer for its fresh water. Right before lunch and dinner, a queue of people and buckets formed at its entrance. It was an opportunity of meeting for the inhabitants. Used until the middle of the 20th century, Fontana Vecchia is today partially covered by Via Giuseppe Garibaldi.
The water collection tank, the hand pump and the drain at the foot of the north wall are still preserved.
