Charette Bread Furnaces


Five furnaces in a good state of conservation, those in the village and at La Craz, Marcieu, Chapieu and Le Vernay, have been restored and are still used today. They all follow the same architectural design, with the furnace housed within a traditional framework.
They were built at the beginning of the 20th century, around 1914.
