You will intervene with the help of a technical supervisor to restore this wall using traditional masonry techniques. Searching and sorting of the stones will be done, then you will re-use these stones to fill the gaps. You will be doing small construction work.

At the foot of the Massif du Dévoluy, in the Hautes-Alpes, are the remains of the castle of Lesdiguières, located at the entrance of a hamlet of the same name, in the district of Glaizil. This castle was built in the 16th century by François de Bonne, the future duke of Lesdiguières and the last constable of France. Today, only the ruins of the old chapel, the towers, and broken down sections of the walls can be found at the site of this once-grand castle, ranked as a French national historic monument. Since 2010, an international youth workcamp is organized here every year.
