A folk term for sacred wells dedicated to St. Anne, mother
of the Virgin Mary and grandmother of Christ. According to a
Breton legend, St. Anne lived in Brittany in her old age and was
visited by Christ, of whom she requested help for the sick in her
district. Christ pierced the ground with a staff and opened a
healing spring, later named St. Anne-de-la-Palue.
