Reconciliation at Mount Gerbier-de-Jonc


December 05 2020 - The Loire river crosses France to reach the Atlantic Ocean. The waters have chosen to make their way north, instead of galloping towards the Mediterranean.

In the study certificate, a young girl answered the question "where does the Loire take its source?" "In my father's stable". One of the recognized sources flows in this old farm. But others claim to own the spring and are torn to the advantage of owning it around Mount Gerbier-de-Jonc.

The Ministry of National Education sends a geographer from Paris to determine its exact location and who owns this source.

After lengthy calculations, the geographer fails to authenticate one source more than another, so he decides on an additional location called Geographic source.

Nowadays we can see around Mount Gerbier-de-Jonc that there are improvised signposts here and there that invite the visitor to enter a particular farm to admire the one, the only, the true source of the Loire ... and taste some local specialty.

 To reconcile everyone, a hand of luck has been placed at the center of all sources.
