Camps la Source - Street
The houses seem to huddle together protecting themselves from advancing time. Hats used to be made in Camps.
The old factory, with its round medieval style door, is still standing as a reminder of this period

The many gushing sources here were used for working telt which demands large quantities of water. Until a few years ago the Vittel company operated one of these sources for making sodas.
