The Heritage Days
Presentation, by Didier Repellin, on 19/09/2020 during Heritage Day, of the launch of the consolidation and restoration work on the western façade of the Abbey of St Antoine.
Built to house the relics of St. Anthony, the abbey is one of the most remarkable Gothic achievements of the Dauphiné. The western façade, built in molasse stone, is deeply degraded: weathering of the facings and carvings as a result of the ageing of the stone, black sliders, invasive vegetation.
Completion of the emergency works on the Saint Eutrope Hill

Château de la Chaize - Réalisation du portail d'entrée
As part of the project of restoration and rehabilitation of the Domaine de La Chaize, the main entrance of the domain was created on an already existing access. Not being historically an access of honor, this portal has been treated with a functional simplicity and without ostentation. Made of wrought iron, it is held by two raised stone piles with pots. It is extended on both sides by a half-moon materialized by a wrought iron gate mounted on a stone base. The access path has been requalified and bordered by an alignment of ash and lime trees.
BARRY troglodyte site: rehabilitation, valorization and security
Start of the work of the troglodyte Barry site weakened by the wear of time
Following the master plan carried out by our agency in 2013 and restoration work on the chapel in 2014, the Ville de Bollène has again entrusted the project management to RL&A.
Restoration in conservation concerns more than 45 troglodyte dwellings spread over 4 sectors, terraces and pathways. The intervention aims to be as minimal as possible in order to ensure the "natural" conservation of the site, its security, and visitors' understanding of the intelligence of this habitat, in perfect osmosis with nature.
