The Fountain of Orpheus was originally constructed on Plaza de la Provincia in 1629 but was dismantled in 1865. Over a century later, the municipal housing authority constructed a replica based on the original design at the square. The fountain has an octagonal base with four water spouts issuing from a central column topped by a statue of Orpheus.
Standing in front of the Santa Cruz Palace, which formerly housed the Cárcel de Corte prison and is now home to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the replica of the fountain recalls the original appearance of the square.
