The marble fountain:
Water is an essential part of the organisation of this village.
In effect, Grust is installed on a brow going from South to West along a slope and it also benefits from the spring water, which gushes and surges out on the high part of the village.
Underground it serves a rosary of wash-houses and farms, it passes under the church and surges out in this beautiful marble fountain in the centre of this small square ideal for resting and dreaming.
