Jalisco. The fountain at El Cabezón

 Closing out our posts for Hispanic Heritage month, we offer a final post in our current series on Jalisco.

El Cabezón, the hacienda chapel 

In an earlier post on Jalisco we looked at the historic hacienda of El Cabezón and its remarkable altarpiece
In this post we showcase its unusual “fish” fountain, located in front of the hacienda chapel and adjacent portales.
The circular fountain is ringed by overlapping scales of different sizes with carved fish serving as spouts.
