The place de la Grande Fontaine

Historic site and monument, Historic patrimony, Fountain, listed in Saint-Paul de Vence
  • The former market square stands at the heart of the village. Its washhouse and monumental fountain (1850) offer welcome shade and water…

  • Redesigned in the 17th and again in the 19th century, this square has always been the busiest spot in the village. From dawn until dusk villagers would come to fetch water, donkeys and mules would drink, and washerwomen would scrub and beat their laundry in the washhouse. The square also hosted the weekly market in the 17th century.
