Caño Wamba – Wamba Fountain
Alhama de Granada
Built in 1533, it was the first public fountain in Alhama. Curiously it is named after a Gothic King, although there isn’t any iconographic reference that refers to him on it. On both sides of the front hood of the basin, the emblems of Isabella (the yoke) and Ferdinand (arrows) are found.
At the centre, is the shield of their grandson Carlos I of Spain (Carlos V of Germany). The fountain can be seen to be a telling representation of the new Christian power.
