Morestel's most prominent fountain stands on Place Grenette in the old town.
It was Joseph Claude Pécoud, then Mayor, who had the well on Place Grenette converted into a fountain, as indicates the inscription on the stone above it: "In 1840, year of the lord, thanks to Mr. Joseph Claude Pécoud, a town administrator, the nymphs gurgle and, with the help of a pump, water flows out".

- Route de Lyon, opposite Rue de la Rivoirette
