Man-made heritage

Life in the village was largely self-sustaining; this is why it is scattered with buildings which demonstrate the daily activities of the population: The subsistence economy was built around the cultivation of chestnuts, orchards and family vegetable gardens.

Chestnut drying huts (grataghji)

some of which are still in working order, are two story buildings: On the ground floor a log fire on the ground gives off the heat necessary to dry the fresh chestnuts lain on wooden racks on the first floor.

 

Chestnut silos (I chjostri)

These dry stone circular enclosures located in the chestnut groves were used for stocking chestnuts during the harvest period before transporting them to the drying kilns.

 

Mills (I Mulini)

Situated along the riverbanks, these mills are the remains of chestnut flour production. These dry-stone, water-powered constructions held granite grindstones. You can find some of these water mills near the natural pools of Aïtone.
