Human settlement


The agro-pastoral system has left its mark on the architecture of the valley, both in terms of the groupingof the houses and of the design of the houses themselves? The Villarin settlements are divided into hamlets known as "villages". Most houses are of block design, with the stable, barn and living areas accommodated under a single roof; the only traditional outbuilding was a small construction knownas the grenier or grain store.
