MUNICIPALITY OF FONTANAFREDDA
The cold spring waters that spring out in the town centre, in the past a refreshment place for hunters, Roman soldiers, medieval pilgrims and merchants, are its distinctive element, so much so that it became the name of the town. A thoroughfare for people of various historic eras, it suffered sackings and devastation, like those of the Turks in 1499 that every year are remembered by the sound of the bells on the 30th September. At the end of May the street theatre parade is held while the water festival is in the middle of June.
