The well has written a poem that tells its “legend”:
Do not say this water I will not drink
For this fountain you see here
Is the source of virtue
and has such magnitude
Who to drink his water is invited
confirmed by a devotee
What a parishioner of this Church.
A single who drinks it with the intention of getting married
Does not fail! Because instantly
Bride he has, soon you’ll see! …
There is no doubt that this town of the Alpujarras is a special place, not only for the famous fountain of San Antonio, but also for the well-preserved Moorish aspect of its streets, the joy of its people and the impressive natural landscape surrounding it.
