Parc National des Cévennes Things to Do: 35 reviews and 103 photos
The traditionnal roof of the Cévennes shisteuses is made of local stones. Shist is a type of rock (a metamorphic rock) that break into flat pieces. A bit more chipping, and it is perfect for a roof tile!
In the old days, great care was taken to make the shist roofs with natural materials to insure no leaking would occur during rains. Now, people put an aluminium roof which they hide with schists plates for esthetic purposes.
