Snow-topped Mont Canigou, 150 kilometres away

A capitelle (left, above), one of the stone shepherds’ or goatherds’ huts which are dotted all over the hills around Faugères.  They were used for shelter.  This one, near the cave cooperative, has been restored by a group of local people who rebuild the stone walls and old buildings around the village.  Down in the valley of the river Orb, the peach trees were in flower near Hérepian (above, right).
