Het project duurt van 13 augustus t/m 2 september.

In 2017, a first international workcamp began clearing and restoring the remains of the ancient site on the northern part of the site. This year, you will intervene by continuing this work and by restoring another part of the site. This will be your opportunity to learn traditional techniques of masonry work, and to discover the proper functioning of this building that survived different wars.

Come and discover « La Mère Église », one of the oldest chapels of Hautes-Alpes ! Every summer, it's stones dance to the music of musicians coming from different parts of the world for the Music Festival of Dévoluy. Built in a roman architectural style, the chapel is located in the community of Saint Disdier amid the mountain range of Dévoluy. Named as a historical monument in 1927, La Mère Église was built by the Clusien monks.
