  • It is situated on the side of the Port See building and faces the statue of Vímara Peres. It is a small source and not a fountain, attributed to Nicolau Nasoni, being a work of the 19th century. It owes its name to the angel St. Michael who is at the top of the column that is above the spout.

  • This Baroque-style fountain falls a little into oblivion at the foot of porto's cathedral (the Se). It deserves a restoration that would give it back some of its former luster. Dedicated to the Archangel Saint-Michel (a relief is also dedicated to it on the column), it is said to be the work of the Italian architect and painter Niccolo Nasoni (1691-1773) who was very active in Portugal in the 18th century including frescoes of the loggia de la Porto Cathedral (1725) and the altarpiece at the Igreja de Santo Ildefonso (1745).
