Heritage, a legacy of the past
The garrigue is marked by history with its clapas, capitelles or dry stone mazets that testify to an agricultural past. A clapas is a pile of stones extracted from the ground, which attests to the cultivation of a field, sometimes forming low walls.
The fields being often far from the villages, the inhabitants built capitelles to shelter, eat or store tools. The mazet, more sophisticated than a capitelle, is a construction fitted out for living in.
