    The history of this community museum is incredible: the five traditional buildings were saved from destruction, completely dismantled and rebuilt identically on a new site. Come and discover a 15th-century farmhouse, a 17th-century farmhouse, a former tile factory...
    Precious testimonies of rural life...
