Fresca Fountain

The "fontaine fraîche" (the fresh fountain) looks East, the sea and the island of Elba. "I remember telling Jo Bartolomei now gone, that the ancients loved this place for its freshness, summer evenings. There was to the left of the fountain, a huge chestnut. We settled below, sitting on a hill. The current wall was built much later. In the evening the men would gather there and told them their amorous adventures in distant lands and ports crossed (many were sailors) or talking about the war, the Great, the 14-18 "Later in the year 50 lovers came in the evening, kissing under the arch. Running water enters houses in 1947 but the fountain was not neglected. Source: destination Cap Corse
