Alpandeire – Well of the Church

The Well of the Church is located in C/ del Pósito (street), in fron of the Church of San Antonio de Padua, in the Andalusian town of Alpandeire.

The village of Alpandeire is a village that´s rich in water, as the great number of water, as the great number of water sources, fountains, wells and laundry areas bear witness, Pozancon, Pilar de Don Jose, and the Fuente del Lavadero, among others. This abundance of water is caused by the village being situated where the limestone, and therefore porous, mountains of Oreganal meet a layer of impermeable clay that allows the water to be stored in the subsoil.

The well, a natural source of water, is built into one of the houses. Completely integrated in the dwelling, it highlights the whitewashed façade, thanks to a round arch of brick. Its interior structure has a semi-circular structure topped with stones at the top. The whole is closed by bars, something very characteristic of the village, where the forge has a great tradition.
