Les Cadrans Solaires de Molines

Historic site and monument, Historic patrimony, Sun dial in Molines-en-Queyras
  • The sundial was the means to read the time in a country where the sun shines 300 days a year!

  • Many dials were painted by Giovanni Francesco Zarbula during the second half of the 19th century. In the last decades, Remi Potey has restored some of them and created others.
    Most of them have a motto, either in Latin, in French or in dialect.
    You can find them in the different hamlets of Molines, on religious buildings as well as in private homes.
