La Fuente que adorna esta plaza fue inaugurada en la Plaza Mayor el 2 de Junio de 1852, y por ella brotó por primera vez agua entubada venida de la Presa de la Olla y para el servicio de la población. El 21 de enero de 1886 se quitó de la Plaza Mayor y se pasó a la Plaza de San Diego, de donde el 4 de octubre de 1893 la trasladaron a este lugar.
