The traditional hut Camarguaise :
It is built of mud, with a roof of reeds. It is designed to withstand the Mistral wind violating of the region, with its rounded apse, often surmounted by a cross and turned to the wind.
Small openings, and white allow it to withstand the high heat of summer.
These huts were once used by shepherds and herdsmen. It was often at his side a large scale in the form of white matte (the escalassoun), which allowed the guard to watch his flock.
