A group of locals, passionate about the heritage of their village, has created an association to conserve and maintain it. That is why they contacted Concordia so that a team of volunteers come and help to restore a part of the wall which encircles a charming fortified church in the heart of a bucolic setting. They will be delighted to welcome you to share their knowledge of the history of the region and its rich heritage.
