#2 Manel’s Fountain



In 1896, a shepherd named Manel wrote a poem about a conversation he had with a bird. Manel lived in the French Pyrenees. He planted trees on his mountain — l'Albère. In some of its rocks he engraved guiding notes and poems for travellers across time. We spent an afternoon looking for a fountain that Manel constructed around a natural water source deep in the woods.
