Vineyard huts

Route POI
Index card


The huts are arguably the most noteworthy element of dry stone architecture. They were designed to meet the need for shelter of both people and animals, but were also used to store the tools and dry the fruits. The type and size of the huts vary depending on their purpose, but all tend to have slightly inclined walls to prevent collapse, and a south facing entrance, to take advantage of the sunlight and a false vault.
