Water, a witness to life in the past

Used for centuries by large families, the water mills bear witness to intense agricultural and cereal activity. Refurnished and restored, some are regularly open to the public: the Gèdre-Dessus, Sazos or Arcizans-Dessus mills

Wash houses and fountains were the hub and meeting place of every village for centuries, and are still visible today in every village. The “Heritage walk” application "From one washhouse to another" tells of the life around washhouses in years gone by.  
Consult the Heritage walk brochure and all the walks.
