Wash-house on Route de Vence

The wash-house in Tourrettes-Sur-Loup is located very centrally, in the town just off the main road Route de Vence and opposite the church of Saint-Grégoire.

It is like most wash-houses in France, built in the 19th century, as part of the prevention of the hygiene challenges of the time, which followed in the wake of the very extensive pandemics that ravaged the 19th and early 20th centuries.

In front of the wash-house is a very popular fountain, especially for cyclists, who can fill their water bottles with completely fresh water.
