Medicinal well


There are four natural springs, of which one is considered and historically referred to as the “medicinal well”, which has supplied people for centuries with a small, but constant amount of healing water. In the “Essai Historique” is stated: “Never, neither in winter, nor summer, not even during the hottest days, has anyone witnessed that the well has run dry, that the well diminished or increased”. Its wellness results were mentioned by early colonists and indigenous people living in the area. Nowadays people still visit Jodensavanne to fetch a bottle of miracle water.
