Les quartiers d'Arbéost

Centred on the village of Arbéost in the Pays de Nay, this enjoyable hike between village, undergrowth, pasture lands and barns, offers a good overview of all the districts of Arbéost. The circuit goes through some historical paths. In Bigorre, a mountainous area, where a landholding could only support one family. Primogeniture was the law. The eldest child, boy or girl, inherited the land and the house. The younger children had to seek their fortune elsewhere. They often settled not too far away, along with other younger children, and created small communities. Arbéost was founded in this way in the 12th century by younger children from Arrens and Marsous, in the Val d’Azun. The village, comprising several districts, each with its own identity and activities, reflected those men and women who made a living as craftspeople, shepherds, miners or colliers.
