The Modern Pond

The Modern Pond

Located in the center of Rochefort en Terre, L’Étang Moderne is the former parish hall of the village. Generations of schoolchildren have taken their first steps on stage in this place. Many of them remember with emotion the show they performed in front of their families and the parties that took place there. This place is imprinted with the local collective cultural memory. A real blowhole is still in place.
