Exhibition "La Routo: On the paths of transhumance, 1783-1945" visible at the Departmental Archives of Alpes-de-Haute-Provence from March 2022 to September 2022.


Very high in history, Haute Provence is a land of welcome for the transhumant herds that come to graze there, these "wool animals" raised for their fleece and their meat. The “drailles” or “carraires” – these paths taken by the herds – are very crowded: on the outward journey in the spring, from lower Provence; on the return in autumn, when the herds leave the pastoral mountains, as soon as the first snows appear, for the gentle plains of Crau or Var.

Inauguration on March 4 at 16:30 p.m.
