The holy well is a small plot of land under some tall trees.


Along the R282 we saw the signpost to this holy well and took a detour.

Under some tall trees there is a nice well house with the entrance to the southeast (140°). The whole inner space is filled with water that leaves the house through the door.
A white Latin cross is on the top of the roof, two lanterns are above the entrance, and I think they are mainly meant to lit the area where the small offer box is. On the other side of the entrance is a niche with some cups to help visitors take some water from the well.

We had to wait for the rain to ease off a little before getting out the car, but the grace moment lasted a few minutes and we found ourselves under a heavy rain!
