The Troglodyte Houses of Forges

  • Parking

These troglodyte houses, dug into the tufa below ground level, are similar to those of southern Tunisia (Matmata), but especially to those of Aragon in northern Spain.

It is by walking on the roofs of the houses among the trees, chimneys and animals that you will begin to discover this troglodytic hamlet from the 18th and 19th centuries: its farmyard, its two courtyards and its many authentic rooms. of rural peasant life.
