The natural context: the art of dry stone walls

In the natural context of the Hyblaean countryside you can spot dry stone walls between one prickly pear plant and another.
In 2018 they were included in the List of Intangible Cultural Heritage by the UNESCO Committee for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage.
The art of dry stone walls is part of the knowledge passed on in rural communities from generation to generation.
The walls are built with stones placed one on top of the other without the use of other materials, except dry earth.
These structures are a testament to the building technique that originated in prehistoric times and is still used today.
