The houses of Castagniccia

The buildings are functional and sober, sometimes austere. The houses of hewn stone, with gray slate roofs that are called "lauzes" are the typical frame of the region. The windows are narrow, thick walls protect from the cold winter and keep the houses cool in the summer. There are "tower houses" everywhere ... like in the village of Carpineto. The villages are built on ridges or in the middle of chestnut trees. The slate also cover all the utility built: bread ovens, mills, dryers chestnuts, wash houses, fountains ...
