[The Theron fountain ]

Seules quatre fontaines "d'eau bonne" mis à part les puits, desservaient le village à la fin des années 1950. Celle-ci était la plus ancienne. Située à l'arrivée de la source captée, l'eau s'écoulait dans une galerie souterraine maçonnée et elle avait la réputation d'avoir l'eau la plus fraîche.
Une raison suffisante, en pays méditerranéen, pour qu'une fontaine donne son nom à tout un quartier.

[Translation by Google Translate (with modifications):
The Theron Fountain
Only four "water right" fountains, apart from the well, served the village in the late 1950s. It was the oldest. Located at the arrival of the captured source, water flowed into an underground masonry and had the reputation of having the coolest water.
Sufficient reason, in Mediterranean countries for a fountain gives its name to an entire neighborhood.
