A Fonte Grande is a postcard of the cultural village of Alte. Environmental heritage, a source of crystalline waters surrounded by majestic trees, a picnic site with tables and stone benches, is a leisure destination that invites walks and picnics.
For centuries, the flowing of the river, supplied by Great Source, fed the village, served to enjoy the esparto, were used by laundresses and watered the gardens around it. Today, after many improvements, the Great Source is a real pool, enjoyed by many to bathe in its clear waters that give health to the body. Fonte Grande photo.
Throughout the year it is visited by thousands of tourists, locals and foreigners, attracted by the beauty of the bucolic landscape. It is adjacent to the Great Source of performance of traditional celebrations of May 1st and folklore festivals, which give motion, color and joy to the whole village of Alte.

A Great Source has always been muse to poets, a site with stories and trivia, all the conversations and songs on moonlit nights.
