Original and unusual

The Sainte-Baume is still houses more than twenty coolers, active in the 17th and 18th centuries. The water of sources and streams was harnessed, frozen in pools between January and March and then stored in deep wells dug into the rock. In summer, the blocks were cut up and transported overnight to Toulon and Marseille.
