In former times, the fountains played a central role in the daily lives of Chur’s inhabitants as they washed the laundry, fetched water and watered their animals. The fountains were also a social centre where people met up and discussed the latest news. Today these fountains serve more as a tourist attraction and each tells a fascinating story that is well worth hearing. While on this 2-hour tour of the fountains, you will learn many interesting things about the past from your guide.
