The pilgrimage to Saint Méens Fountain The chapel The fountain
On 21 June the pilgrims go to Saint Méens tiny chapel situated along a narrow road not far from Langogne. Saint Méen was a Welsh Saint. He is said to have made water spring from a source and heal scabies. The pilgrims do an offering and ask for a favour. They tie handkerchieves round wire. The cult of fountains dates back to ancient times. The Druids used to revere them.
