The fontestorbes intermittent fountain
Very rare event as much as curiosity of nature, the fountain of Fontestorbes is an exceptional phenomenon. Indeed, this river comes out of the cave Fontestorbes, runs for 36 minutes and 36 seconds and then stops for 32 minutes and 30 seconds.
Although there are thirty other intermittent fountains in the world, the fountain of Fontestorbes is unique in several ways. First, this fountain is very regular in contrast to other sources. It also has an unprecedented scale since the flow between each cycle goes from almost complete drying out up to 1800 l/ s. Finally, other intermittent sources in the world produce a lower rate of flow than Fontestorbes.
