Proud of this heritage, the city tries its best to maintain its natural and rural territory, while developing touristic activities. This summer, the workcamp objective will be to restore one of Laplumes churches. A local association was founded in order to save the historical patrimony of the area. They will work side by side with the international volunteers. It has now been two years since the site welcomed Concordia’s first international volunteers.
