Fontaine du Saint

Fountain and wash house, Listed or registered (CNMHS) in La Vraie-Croix
  • The fountain of the Saint located at the eastern exit of the town on the edge of a small stream, is protected as a Historic Monument.

  • It takes place in the center of a stone paving delimited by small low walls and in the East by a large basin having long been used as wash-house. This fountain has the shape of a small oratory. Its 4 cylindrical columns, with square bases and capitals, are surmounted by basket-handle lintels which support a pyramid topped with a cross and confined at each corner with ball balusters. Unlike the usual niche with statue, the back wall is decorated with a crucifixion scene.
