The bread ovens
vague

cc
A bit of history...
Often belonging to the larger estates and their lords, the ovens could be used by all in return of tax or goods. Many villages also had a public oven owned by the villagers, as were the washhouses and the fountains. In general use until the beginning of the 20th century, they used to be popular and convivial places in all the villages.
The wood-fired bread ovens can be found inside houses or in separate buildings. In the latter case, they either adjoin the house or are completely separate. They are easily spotted because of the chimney and of a round-roofed part (bottom of oven) where the baking takes place (not always visible from the outside).

Some ovens:
