Situated on the side the West of Tray, in hundred of Meters at the foot of the tower Navarre, the fountain to the fairies Is frequented since the Gallo-roman period. During excavations In 1855, we found nearby Antique diverse vestiges (fragment Of mosaics, frescoes, Gallic currencies and Romaine lettuces) as well as an altar Kept today in Museum of Langres. On this one Represent three representing women Three goddesses Mothers to whom the source was dedicated. These divinities protective and bénéficial helped the people and accompanied them in their passage towards the kingdom Deaths. During it Christianization, this cult Heathen was replaced: the fairies Dethroned the goddesses mothers And temptresses became and harmful. Discreet and modest, this fountain is constituted by a conduit arched forming harnessing and closed by a railing; from there, the water passes by delicately in small rectangular pond before passing by in the direction of Bonnelle. She is registered on the Additional Inventory of historic monuments since 1925.
