Fontaine de la Plomée

Yves Corlay

Guingamp /  Fontaine de la Plomée   Guingamp /  Fontaine de la Plomée


Fountain composed of three basins, the first granite, the other two lead. The first lead basin is carried by four griffins, the second one by four winged women. The fountain is topped by a statue of a woman standing on a crescent moon and a serpent. Very likely, this is a representation of a Florentine Madonna, but others recognize in her the Celtic mother goddess Ana (Anna).
The name "La Plomée" is derived from the breton word plomenn, meaning pump, fountain, or regionally also source. Other explain the name as derived from the lead basins ("plomb" is french for lead).
