There is so much to learn !
Fontcouverte takes its name from the “Covered Fountain” located below the road that leads out of town: a stone basin covers a natural spring. This construction is apparently quite old. A few dozen metres above, the Cromlech was erected at the dawn of time (probably the Neolithic) below the Villards chapel. It consists of 12 stones erected in a semi-circle, facing the rising sun. Evidence of Bronze Age period human presence in what is now the municipality has been established. Remains testify to this. 16 hamlets make up our municipality, which extends from Saint-Colomban-des-Villards to Albiez and Saint-Jean-d’Arves.
