it is a pool of water that I guess they used a long time ago for drinking water. The water is surprisingly blue and very very deep we were all impressed.

It is very nice attraction, but it is hidden little bit. It looks like you are going into privat secret garden :-)

A must-see if you are in Tonnerre. Make sure to go down the steps and walk around the lavoir -- there are fireplaces hidden in the walls of the structure.
