The fountain of the three nozzles is the oldest fountain in Lourdes, representing the lively centre of the city in the Middle Ages. It was modified in 1811.
In 1881, the municipality council decided to renovate it totally. Three copper nozzles were installed to regulate its flow, thus giving it its name: “la fontaine aux trois becs” (the fountain of the three nozzles). Today it still keeps its features of 1881.
