Fontana Fountain Tips (3)

Fontana

Fontana is a suburb of Victoria and lies downhill on the Victoria - Xlendi road.

The village took its name from a spring found at the bottom of the road leading to Xlendi, locally referred to as "il-Ghajn il-Kbira" (the big spring).

Due to this river, people began to inhabit the area, while the arched shelters were built in the sixteenth century.

Inside these shelters can be still found today the traditional stone water tubs in which the locals did their daily washing and above the fountain is a beautiful niche with the statue of Our Lady with Jesus Child.

Today, the population of Fontana amounts to 817 persons, 407 males and 410 females.

Fontana

If you are able to get to here, either by tour bus, or car hire, do look for the 17th Century public wash-houses, that are still used by the local village people to this day.

There are two, one on either side of the road.

If you see the one I picture here, then to the right of it, up some steps, there is a gift shop, do go in, taste the wine, and other delicacies of Gozo, and enjoy. I bought some local made cakes, delicious. mmnn - rather like Bakewell tarts without the icing on top.
There is also a gift shop on the other side of the road that has a resident lacemaker working, and you can watch and marvel at her work. Also purchase lace too.

Fontana is Italian terminology for spring. Fontana, a suburb of Victoria, lies downhill on the Rabat-Xlendi road. People began to inhabit the area because of this useful fresh water springs. The arched shelters were built in the sixteenth century over each spring for the convenience of the people. Inside one can still find traditional stone water tubs in which local folk could do their daily washing.
