Village des Bories - Gordes

With no cemetery or church, this hamlet is typical of the temporary housing which, in Mediterranean countries, came to double the permanent village and was linked to seasonal agricultural work.

Its appearance is the result of the great movements of land conquest that Provence experienced in the 17th and 18th centuries. The rush to the hills around Gordes was the source of thousands of tons of stones extracted from the ground during the making of the fields, which gave rise to the various groups of huts found on this limestone plateau.
