The fountain with seven spouts is where the women gathered to wash clothes. Under the arched to the right, in the shade, is where the final cleaning and rinsing in the clothing would be done, no doubt accumpanied by perpetual gossip. The clear moutain water is ice cold in the hot Andalucian sun. It would be hard to imagine a more pleasant place for such an everyday task.
