Olivares – La Coriana Fountain

La Coriana Fountain is located north of the Sevillian town of Olivares, in the direction of Gerena.

The fountain and the trough of La Coriana have characteristics from different times; they have traces from the islamic times. They were restored in the eighties of the las century. Water reaches the fountain through a conduit coming from the upper area of the surrounding environment, the areas known as Montijo and Las Landrias.

For centuries, it has been the point of water supply for farmers and animals. The abundance of water in the springs that supply this fountain made possible that it it has always water pouring from its pillars. Even during years of severe droughts. On both sides of the trough, we find two rows of stones of different sizes. They are placed in vertical and are probably from the Roman period.

Recent archaeological studies in this area are based on the assumption that this place were a rest and recreational area. The area seems to have been in the route of the Roman road that linked Hispalis and Onuba, passing through Tejeda. The route seemed to go close to the Fountain of La Coriana, climbing to the area known as Las Landrias. This source should have been the closer one to the path towards Hispalis. The place is essential on the route. It is an ideal resting place when you are about to reach the upper area of El Aljaraje. Also ideal once you have made the descent from El Aljarafe, already in the way to Campo de Tejeda.
