Small heritage

 

 

 

The Uzège-Pont du Gard area has launched an inventory with the aim of compiling a list of and studying our local minor and public heritage.

This includes small constructions; crosses, wells, huts and small chapels as well as public buildings such as the fountains, wash houses and public squares which stand within our area and contribute to its special character.

Thanks to the input from local towns and villages and the dedication of volunteers who have been trained in the techniques used for the inventory, we have been able to build an excellent picture of our religious, agricultural, craft and hydraulic heritage.

 

Come and discover this heritage as you explore our local villages.
