La stèle et la fontaine du Teilloux

This naive figure appears in several places in the village. Was there a stonemason in Le Teilloux? According to oral memory, the cross above the stele was made of ornate wrought iron. It was broken when it was moved during road construction. The roadside fountain has a regular, rounded shape. It is built of stone...

Two stones, fixed vertically in the masonry, were used to hold the buckets.
