FONTAINE SAINT-MARTIN

1

As you stroll towards the pond at Saint Michel en l'Herm, you'll come across the area's most remarkable public fountain, dedicated to Saint Martin and built in 1862 in the 17th century style. Beaches of the Sud Vendée and Rétro littoral.

Description

At the foot of the Fontaine Saint-Martin, at the bottom of the hillside, a drinking trough of around 200m² was used to water domestic animals.
This fountain, which is just above the water table, now feeds the lake.
It is topped by a rectangular plaque framed by two volutes. A cornice follows the semi-circular arch of the opening above the central door.
