Description of this building by mboulo :

Fontaine St Vincent: 1881 à Le Hézo 56

Couronnée d'une toiture pyramidale soutenue par des piles carrées, la fondation porte sur son linteau la date de 1881. Une petite niche abrite une statue de saint Vincent patron des vignerons ; comme le linteau, elle est ornée d'étoiles. Cette fontaine témoigne de la persistance jusqu'à la fin du siècle dernier de la tradition d'ériger des fontaines publiques consacrées.
