Fountain - Lavoir de La Caranca

Historic site and monument, Historic patrimony, Fountain, 19th C in Saorge

  • The municipality wants to supply this district, the highest of the village, with water from the source "fontana sourana" (upper fountain), which gushes a few hundred meters from there.

  • The roof beams are covered with violet lauzes, while the fountain and wash house are made of green stone from Tende. The copper spout continuously discharges the water that the housewives come for in wooden or tinned copper cuttlefish. They meet at the wash-house to wash their laundry and exchange news.
  • Spoken languages
