Do you see the drywall?
They line the Septimer route and shape the cultural landscape in Parc Ela. Dry stone walls have been built for centuries with natural stones without concrete and mortar to demarrate pastures, to protect avalanches and as retaining walls. 

Today, many dry stone walls are no longer maintained and disintegrated. The association Parc Ela has therefore inventoried, renovated or even rebuilt the existing drystone walls. Since 2013, civil servants, companies and holiday working groups have been repairing selected sections of the mile-long dry stone walls along the Septimer route.

In the Gian Parpan tells you more about the construction and stability of the drystone walls.
