The town of Pouques-les-Eaux is watered by three streams: the Ru d'Eau, the stream of Mardeloup and the Pisserotte. Th etown is places at the bottom of a small plain, adjoining the flank of Mount Frost. It is a residential town in the middle of several parks. During the Renaissance, Pougues was one of the first cities built around the culture of water. The history of the city remains largely rocked by the presence of hydrotherapy. It lost its function as a spa since 1971. The bottling of water has however continued until 1975.
