‘Le guide des Aiguiers’ tells the tale of a passionate encounter in the heart of one of the most mysterious corners of the ‘Monts de Vaucluse’, a little known and often-misunderstood region. The discovery of the ‘aiguiers’ (ancient covered water tanks), this ‘original peasant artform’ to quote Pierre Martel, will take you along the paths of the lost civilisation of dry stone. It will encourage a geographical, geological, ethnological and historical discovery of this real sanctuary. This booklet provides information to anyone who accepts to be guided along the proposed pathways. You will be unable to remain indifferent to these discoveries. The genius of the place will have a profound impact. You will be caught up in wonderment with the sensation of being the very last witness to a byegone age when the slightest trickle of water caught the attention of local people.
