Description

Relatively simple path around Najac (but with some elevation which makes it difficult) to discover old fountains in a calm and wooded environment.

Essential to village life, the fountains were fed by drainage water from the Terre Rouge – La Planquette plateau. They are called griffouls.
The first fountain was built in 1344 in the Bourguet district. This is sculpted from a single block of granite. We can find the figures of the former consuls and the bishop there. It remained in use until the beginning of the 20th century.
