pigeonnier.

Dovecote square pan coated wood, on 4 stone piers. The Dovecote on the Maurague stacks depended on a large set today in ruins: the dimensions of the buildings and the traces of a tower suggest that it was an important House, the head of an agricultural estate, perhaps a mansion. The remains and the Dovecote dating from the 16th century or, more likely, from the 17th century.
