The holy well in the shadow of the tree. The tree and the well are adorned with offerings from the people who visit the place.


This holy well is dedicated to St. Gobnat. It is located in a wonderful location, at the end of a track that starts from the iron arcway on the side of the road and ends under a large tree. More trees are all around and the trunks are covered with green and thick moss. The sunlight doesn't filter through their branches, as for the satellite signal, so that the coordinates I read here have a high inaccuracy.
The well itself is inside a small pit under the tree.
This is the final station of the pilgrims path and the tree under which the well is has hundreds of offerings hanging from its branches.
