TO SEE :
The oratories : you will come across several oratories along your way. These little chapels were usually built at crossroads, enabling pilgrims as well as various other travellers, to spend a moment in prayer. It is worth seeing these examples of local heritage.
INTERESTING FACT :
This religious heritage has been through various difficult periods. For example, towards the end of December 1793, the local municipality was ordered to destroy all the little oratories along the footpaths. It is said that the oratory at Les Clapières was saved because it was hidden under a pile of wood.
