Discover Capitelles

While walking through the scrubland, discover capitelles in dry stones. These shelters of farmers and transhumant shepherds, built according to very old methods of construction, testify to a hard time when the peasants were working on these uncultivated lands now fallow. Recently locals have courageously undertaken the straightened out, to allow all to discover this local heritage.
The hike is easy, without a big difference in altitude, but watch out for the feet, the land here is mostly pebbles!
