This circuit combines many viewpoints over the Lot valley with the discovery of some typical gariottes of the causses.

In the XNUMXth century, at the height of the Lot vineyards, the rural population was so numerous that the smallest parcel was cultivated. But the ground was stony and the peasant had to remove the stones to update the earth. In the spring, the plowing brought to the surface its share of pebbles that had to be removed.
It is from this stoning activity that spring dry stone walls and gariottes over the years. These small masterpieces of know-how and simplicity that we discover at the bend of the paths or in the middle of the fields were built without death.
