Depending on its location in the valley or in the mountains, the house adopts a different architect, adapted to its environment and the slope of the land.
Consisting of local materials such as pebble and slate, the traditional house meets the needs of its inhabitants and their activity, often agro-pastoral, until the beginning of the 20th century.
In the villages, the houses are attached to each other, following a road axis but always including a garden space at the back.
Rather narrow and two-storey in mountainous space, it is more spread out in plain and barns and other spaces related to agricultural activity are not included in the same building as the house.
The optimization of the space of the dwelling in the mountains generally leads to the following distribution: on the ground floor are housed the animals and agricultural equipment, the floor is dedicated to the family and the attic stands as a fenil.
Variations exist depending on the construction dates, both for the openings and for the dimensions and the decors. The establishment in the heart area or on the outskirts of the village also differentiates the constructions.
