The first documented mention dates from 1280.
The original location was in front of “Ros de la Font” house (Torres i Bages, 27-31). Transferred, probably in the early eighteenth century, to the place where we find it today.
Because of the drought in 1883 the height of the fountain was reduced. At street level we can find the chapel with the image of “Sant Domènec”.
Every 4th of August the act of blessing the water happens, a tradition that originated in ancient “Sant Domènec” gathering, which began in 1636, when the town gave a people’s vote to “Sant Domènec” to protect the waters from the epidemic affecting the whole country. This tradition has now led to the Clay Jug Festival of Argentona, which is complemented by a large International Fair of Ceramics and Pottery.
