Fortified manor houses and small heritage

The past of the Haut-Lignon is provided by the built heritage: fortified manor houses and castles, mills.

It is often during your walks in the middle of nature or a natural area, far away from the roads, at the end of the path…that you will end up in front of a porch, a door from the 17th century, a bread oven, an old bridge, a school, a barn entrance…. or maybe in front of the house where the famous French writer Albert Camus was living during World War II.
