Briancon’s Mountain canals

Our first project dedicated to the Intangibile Cultural Heritage has given us the opportunity to discover the natural beauties of the southern region called Hautes-Alps (PACA). Furthermore we took the chance to discover the mountain canals which gather the water from the mountains surrounding Briancon and they are used to irrigate the fields in the valleys. Specific to Briancon it is the only place in the world where the canals also arrive in the centre of this town of 2000 inhabitants.
