    Hello, everybody,
    How can I say "al final de la cuesta encontramos una fuente"?

    I've translated it as "at the end of the slope we find a fountain".
    Is it correct? Or should it be "at the bottom of the slope" instead?

    Thank you!

    "At the end" is literal, but "at the bottom" is more colloquial and I prefer it. Strictly speaking the end could also be the top, but if that were the case the sentence would probably have been worded differently.

    Now that I think of it, perhaps it does refer to the top of the slope, it's not very clear, so I think I'll use "at the end", which can be used in both cases.
    Thanks for your help!!!
