Short Description: 

A long fountain is the central feature of the Garden of the King (S'Hort del Rei), a medieval garden located outside the walls of the Almudaina palace in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

Long Description:

A beautifully landscaped long garden fountain is the focal point of the Garden of the King (S'Hort del Rei). The fountain contains two sections separated by a short paved area in the middle. At each end of the fountain
a circular shallow bowl rests in the center of a square stone basin. A stream of water rises from a finial in the center of the basin. Water falls into the bowl and overflows into the stone basin.

A long rectangular pool extends the length of the fountain. The pool has a line of nozzles on both sides. Water, rising up from both sides, falls back into the pool in graceful parabolic arches.
