San Miguel de Allende is a city of fountains. They come in all shapes and sizes, with some still providing water while others are dry. All are a delight to stop and admire, and it’s been exciting to discover new ones.
Though often dry today, the fountains have lost none of their history and charms. They provided, of course, the water the town was founded around but also locations to provide an opportunity to gossip. Some of that gossip rippled into international consequences with the notion of gaining freedom from Spain – San Miguel Times.
Below are seven fountains we’ve come across so far (in no particular order), but we’ve learned there are more than 30 fountains all together in the city, so there are many more to discover and we’re actively looking now!

I have really enjoyed all the stories and pictures from SMA.
Thank you, Linda! We are really enjoying it here – every time we go out it’s an adventure. We have another six weeks to go, but there’s so much left to see, do, and discover.
Gorgeous colours to brighten up a grey winter day.
The colors here are really something else, and so vivid too.
Love the variety of fountains! What a great trip you are having.
We are having a grand time! And, we are still discovering fountains – found two new ones this week!
