The doorway on the front wall of the stone enclosure. The water comes down from the holes into the back wall and then flows away from the enclosure.


Not far from the St. Moling's monastic settlement there's a small group of abandoned houses. The area is absolutely fantastic!
Next to one of those houses there's a holy well. It's a pretty large stone enclosure. The water comes from a pond behind this enclosure and flows out of two holes in the rear wall of the building and into it. On the wall facing the road there's a small doorway from which the water flows away.
We first visited this holy well on June 2nd, 2001, and again on September 25th, 2003.
