This fountain outside the wall was built with a former Roman cistern that was part of the aqueduct connecting Guarcino with Alatri, connecting the springs in the Ernici mountains with the downstream river.

During the Middle Ages it was restored around the XI century and was donated by the Trisulti Carthusian monks to the population of Vico.

Behind the fountain are still the old tanks with water level control systems.
