Dry Stone Walls in Röthis

"Parish church St. Martin, Röthis".

Parish church St. Martin, Röthis.

Dry stone walls are of great ecological, cultural and historical significance for the Municipality of Röthis. Over the past few decades many dry stone walls have crumbled or given way to the spread of settlements. Under the DYNALP Project old dry stone walls are to be restored and new walls constructed with the help of unemployed young people. Landowners and residents are to be made aware of the importance of preserving these precious elements of the landscape. These activities also benefit the appearance of the townscape as a whole.
