Fountain A

Hikers can find an old stone fountain just 50m south of the Monastery of Moundon. Stone fountains such as this one were vital gathering points for villagers and people living in the countryside until just before the end of the 20th century. Running water was a luxury for private residences in the past. That meant that women and children had to draw water from public springs and bring it back home to serve their family’s needs. This situation gave rise to the “neroulas”, a person who would bring water from the local stone fountain to homes and stores for a small fee.
Hikers who stop for a rest at this fountain have the opportunity to take in truly remarkable views while they rest.
