GREEN ROUTE
WALK 1
AROUND «  BARRY DEBAT*  » or FAUBOURG de DESSOUS*

    This district lies outside the wall of the «  bastide*  »,  downstream from the town, hence its name.
    It was less populated and less busy than  Faubourg de Dessus situated upstream. Two causes  : the presence nearby of a hamlet peopled with descendants of lepers (called capots or gagots in this area) and the tanneries which had been set up there.
    Until recently many inhabitants in Plaisance living «  downtown  » had a vegetable garden there.

•    barry = faubourg = suburb
•    debat= de dessous= downstream
•    bastide= walled town in the South West of France
