The mountain in the Alps -Maritimes is characterized by a strong relief with steep slopes . Thus, the villages were they settled in a place of communal territories from which people could better radiate the seasons , reaching the different terroirs above the valley to escape the winter fog and enjoy sunshine longer, but not too high, to stay close to places of culture. The selected altitude began to reach grain fields and allowed to reach without too long a journey to the occupied areas in the offseason and summer pastures : Cipières (750 m) and Gréolières (830 m) specifically meet these conditions . Note the castles that face the heart of these two separated by the Loup Valley villages classic square building of the seventeenth century Cipières , near a large meadow and castle ruins Gréolières with its high perimeter walls of the eleventh .
You get from this we are going down and up ....
