La fontaine d’eau chaude ou la fontaine moussue, encore appelée fontaine du Cours, provient de la source des Bagniers, l’eau qui coule est chaude, et l’hiver une légère brume s’en dégage à cause de l’écart de température. Son nom de « fontaine moussue » vient de ce qu’une mousse verte et épaisse la recouvre, à laquelle se sont intéressés des botanistes. Elle a été profondément remodelée à plusieurs reprises et cela, depuis la première fontaine qui se dressait à cet endroit. Celle-ci a été construite par Jacques Fossé en 1666 sur les plans de Jean-Claude Rambot. À l’origine, un triton ornait cette fontaine, mais, une nuit de 1670, celui-ci a été détruit par « de jeunes imbéciles imbibés de vin». Jacques Fossé réalise donc un autre projet : quatre enfants sur une vasque : il n’en reste rien. Finalement, la fontaine est démolie et remplacée par un monument plus volumineux en 1697. En 1760, elle est totalement reconstruite sur les plans de Georges Vallon et l’eau chaude se met à y couler. Cette eau est en effet dérobée aux artisans du quartier des Bagniers par les bourgeois du cours49. Sa forme actuelle date du début du XIXe siècle. Elle consiste en une vasque à quatre becs verseurs. Les amas de mousse et de terre depuis deux siècles ont totalement fait disparaître ces éléments architecturaux. En période froide, sa vue est plaisante. Une épaisse vapeur d’eau sort du bassin au travers de la végétation. Un visiteur de la ville, en 1888, dira de cette fontaine : « Les fontaines du Cours étaient gelées. Elles ne faisaient plus entendre qu’un clapotement imperceptible, celui du goulot d’eau bouillante, qui continuait à couler sous les glaçons, en dégageant une buée qui se confondait avec le brouillard du dehors. On frissonnait rien que de les regarder.

  2. Interesting post right here. One thing I would really like to say is the fact most professional career fields consider the Bachelors Degree as the entry level standard for an online certification. Whilst Associate Diplomas are a great way to get started, completing ones Bachelors uncovers many entrances to various jobs, there are numerous internet Bachelor Course Programs available by institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another thing is that many brick and mortar institutions offer Online variations of their diplomas but generally for a significantly higher cost than the companies that specialize in online course plans.
