Village des Bories, a very unique village, is composed of seven groupings of huts, each having a very precise function. You will find houses, stables, sheepfolds, barns, grain lofts, silkworm factories and bakehouses, vat houses and tanning mills, henhouses, pig sties and goat shelters. The existence of this village shows that, outside of just a sporadic use of a borie, as a temporary dwilling, for example, or for agricultural purposes, there was a whole social and economic system built around and based on these dwellings of former times.
