Pictures 3,4,5,6 & 8 are Colombiers or Pigeonniers used to collect pigeon poo used as fertilizer and other things. The birds themselves were also a source of food for the Vignerons. Apparently the more grand and/or ornate the structure the wealthier you were.
I wondered if they had any purpose other than being decorative.
Thank you – I’m afraid l don’t know what half of them are for but they do make great pictures.
