THE "BORIES"

Borie is the french word for bori, a provence term meaning “barn for oxes”, which, according to the provence writer Frédéric Mistral directly stems from the latine word boaria.

In provence, « bori » was used as a synonym for « casau » (tumbledown cottage); These shelters made of dried stones were used by shepherds.
