Правила посещения

In the ancient times the chestnut was a base component of the peasant diet, especially in mid mountain villages. Throughout the mountain community, chestnut cultivation has been very important.
In the village of Albard di Bard, to demonstrate the processing of this product a ‘’grehe’’ has been set up, a characteristic small two-storey rural building used to dry chestnuts.
In the same building, in the area once used as a deposit, you can see the original equipment for processing chestnuts along with illustrative panels: the hammer to open them, the pincers to extract them from their cases, the sacks of rough hemp to be beaten on a wooden block to remove the shells, which were then eliminated by shaking it with a winnow (‘’lo van’’, in dialect).
