Aurec-sur-Loire | Aurec-sur-Loire: the cairns are back on the banks of the Loire

Ephemeral works of art, the cairns, these stacks of stones, are back in Semène with the opening of the Grangent dam, which again reveals the natural course of the Loire.

Desiring to allow his son Azul to enjoy outdoor activities, they both began to make the famous stacks, made with stones found on the spot, without being transported or carried, thus creating a strange landscape, in the manner of mesas, canyons or even a strange planet.

One of the main contributors is Sandrine Faure, former partner of Rémy Courage, who comes to paint certain pebbles to add a touch of originality and fantasy.

The work disappears with each rise in water, the Aurécois are invited to take advantage of the ambient dryness to come and visit and enlarge this unusual monument.
