Huts of stone called "capitelles" or "bories"

Historic site and monument Gras

All these constructions give evidence to a rich past of pastoralism and agriculture and demonstrate the know-how and the practical orientation of many generations of farmers in their attempt to rationally and economically organise their environment.

Since 1994, an inventory has made the localisation of hundreds of dry stone constructions possible : old enclosing walls, dozens of cabins, watch towers to monitor the cattle as well as the so-called « acalas », constructions to protect against wind. You can find these dry stone constructions often in not so hilly and open areas, near villages, hamlets and isolated farms. Here are some of these locations with dry stone constructions : La baragne, le Claux du père, Pierre Feu, Les Piades and le Pâtis du Pla
