In Greek mythology, Castalia was a nymph that was transformed into a fountain by god Apollo. The fountain was considered to be located near Delphi, at the base of Mount Parnassos or Mount Helicon. It was believed that anyone who drank from the waters of the fountain or anyone who heard its sound, would be inspired and turn into a poet.
