Photographer's Note

My examinations to finish, I can reposter on TE. Left unscathed savanna (fagnes) or I point out that I was not likely to see pink elephants nor of giraffes (as Pat 500) we finish our adventures with SPA. Or sky, Ho! Miracle is not to us any more to fall on the head, for one free moment with photography. Here we can see the pouhon Small history In XVIe century, only a modest niche sheltered the source which ran at this place. This type of sump was called "pouhon" by the inhabitants. Charmed by the results of his cure, the Pierre Tsar the Large one made there place a black marble stele. The current building, in the shape of octagonal kiosk, goes back to 1880. Its visit starts naturally with a tasting of the water of the pouhon, invigorating with a particularly marked ferruginous taste. In the large room of Pouhon is hung a vast fabric, work of the painter Antoine Fontaine (1894), who gathers 96 famous personalities which remained in Spa: the Pierre tsar the Large one, Offenbach, Marie-Henriette, Joseph II (emperor of Austria), Wellington, John Cockerill, Victor Hugo, Montaigne, etc.
