Post 3. Granaries

These granaries date from the seventeenth century. This type of construction, built on pilotis, was dictated by the need to prevent rodents from attacking provisions ( dried meat, bread, flour ).

All the staples of families were stored here. The grenier and its precious commodities were essential to survival.

Field crops such as wheat, barley or rye, were kept in the raccards, located just outside of the village. The latter, unlike the greniers, were much more ventilated to prevent mould from forming.

Continue along the lane, until the square with a fountain animated by a sculpture representing fighting Hérens cows.
