This group of villages make up the EU’s highest community at around 2100m. Some of their buildings have been World Heritage listed due to the unity and preservation of the architecture and the unique arts and crafts of the people, including interesting textile production with detailed embroidery, jewellery and metal work, carving and icon painting.
