Welcome to Saussines
Do you enjoy walking? Saussines has a well-marked hiking path. You will find the map on a sign in front of the school. This takes you through the natural scrubland environment around the village where you will discover six stone « capitelles » (above), shelters built by farmers or shepherds during the last century.
