San Jon Dadaint spring
Show all 3 images
The main source of the mineral spring is about 15 meters above the Lischana stream in a small area. There are other pools around it. The highlight is the brownish spring tufa a little below, which with its stair-like appearance makes the San Jon Dadaint spring something very special.
Since there is no catchment, the water cannot be tasted.
