A beautiful, crystal clear water source tucked away in a small street. It is in quite an old part of town and makes for a very nice stroll to this historic fountain. A must see when in Tonnerre.

I can't help wondering where are the people allegedly still lost in the caves below! A little shabby but still a curiosity worth seeing, especially as it is very accessable with street parking nearby. Worth a vist.

A must-see if you are in Tonnerre. Make sure to go down the steps and walk around the lavoir -- there are fireplaces hidden in the walls of the structure.
