Historically a place to hold precious water in ancient cities like Greece and Rome, fountains have evolved from a source of hydration to a place inspiration. Reminding us of hidden oases that capture our imagination, they incite within us a sense of wonder and draw us in (plus, tossing in a penny to make a wish never gets old).

Tile and fountains are a natural combination that has been around for centuries--however, their intricate designs still leave us in awe today. We've collected ten of our favorite tiled fountains in honor of this ancient duo (and provide you with some design inspiration along the way). 

Above is our first pick. This beautiful pool and fountain from the United States Botanic Garden features a floor of blue square tiles.
