My lovely Montpellier

How surprising this mikveh, 
hidden in the basement of a mansion from downtown. 
Buried at the time of Louis XIV, following his anti-Protestant politique, these Jews baths were rediscovered in the 1980s.
The water comes from an underground water level 
and naturally passes through the stone. Its freshness and clarity are quite amazing in the heat of the Montpellier side.
