    This altar was erected in 1794 by the people of Fontvieille, to symbolise their allegiance to their homeland. Men and women came in two different processions and left sprays of flowers and ears of wheat to demonstrate their fidelity. Located a few metres south of Daudet's Mill, it was knocked down to the bottom of the hill and then put back in place in 1935. It is an 80 cm wide cubic block, with a shallow square hollow on top. There is no décor or inscription on the stone.

  • Le lavoir - Heritage

    Built heritage - Wash house

    • (0)

    This is a very attractive wash house made of Fontvieille stone. The fresh water came from the 'Vieille Font' fountain nearby. At the time, the inhabitants used it to wash their clothes during the 'bugado' ('washing' in Provençal). It is fairly large, as the village's population was growing steadily over time, and the wash house had to meet everyone's needs. It is a timeless place; it is in the country and thus has a calm atmosphere.
