Rammed earth, an architecture to discover

During your walks, you will definitely see ochre houses. These houses, built following a very ancient building style, are in rammed earth.
Open your eyes deep, it's a treasure of our heritage.
The presence of rammed earth in Val Guiers is quite exceptional in Savoie (similar architectural styles can be found in close territories such as Ain or North Isère). Nowadays this heritage reveals the cultural identity of the landscape of Val Guiers; it is part of a savoir-faire, a lifestyle, a history that is passionating to rediscover.
The tourist office of St Genix sur Guiers possesses an exemple of rammed earth wall of recent construction. People can see it by walking along the building.
A permanent exhibition displayed inside the tourist office explains the building of rammed earth.
