About : Blessing the herds

As early as the fourteenth century, dwellings at the foot of the Col de Cluy are reported.
The chapel of St Ilipse and St Argon was built in the hamlet of Cluy in 1730 and the texts report that since 1755, a mass was said there every year "where cattle are blessed".
The tradition has been perpetuated until today, that's why every year on the 3rd Saturday of July the Blessing of the herds takes place in the hamlet of Cluy.
