History of Orpierre...

Orpierre, the climbing village
curious little houses that we often see in an open field. The raised roof of 50cm on 3 sides, and the glazed tiles around the entrances protect the pigeons from the predators such as the weasels, rats, martens or raptors.
Did you know ?
That in the 80s, Orpierre was saved from abandonment by the cliffs... thanks to the will of a few enthusiasts, especially the former mayor M. Raymond CHAUVET. They decided to support the village by developing climbing. A massive amount of work was done to put in climbing routes. They rectified the stones, carved the rock, secured the cliffs and opened the routes, to offer alpinists the pleasure of climbing safely whatever their level is.
