Lime Kiln

Historic site and monument, Historic patrimony, Ruins and remains, Town of Art & History in La Brigue
  • The presence of this old lime kiln, largely ruined, testifies to the industrialization of a traditional production from the hinterland of Nice, which has remained archaic in many other places.

  • At the end of the 19th century, numerous and important construction sites were opened in Tende and La Brigue by Italian civil and military engineers, to complete the road link with Piedmont and above all to build the defensive works of this border zone, with a great strategic importance. The factory hearth, surmounted by its chimney, is the best preserved part.
