Cave dwellings


The cave dwelling groups all the facilities of a traditional house on surface but it is dug in the cliff. The chimney does not stay on the roof but it pierces the ground of the top of the hill. Sometimes there is a whole village which is hidden in the rock : streets, shops, farms, and also church. Now in France and in other countries there are still people who are living in cave dwellings like their ancestors.
