The fountain consists of a semi-circular basin, dominated by the stone statue of Saint-Denis holding his head in his hands. According to legend, it is at this holy place where he washed his head after decapitation in 250. Thereafter he continued on his way – head under his arm, to the crypt of the Saint-Denis basilica , where he was buried
