“Fuente del Conde” is a place of marked emotional significance for Algímia d’Alfara inhabitants. It ought not to be forgotten that since 1907 it has supplied the population with water. It is constantly visited by people: for its tranquillity, excellent shade and good water, which allows families and groups of friends to enjoy picnics. It is also a heritage complex in which water harvesting and use elements concentrate along the small ravine where they are located from the highest water intake gallery to the accumulation pool a few metres below.
