Poya Estavannens

Every 10 to 12 years, Estavannens hosts the Poya Festival, a timely reminder of the importance of cattle farming for the region.

Poya

In spring, it's time for the ascent to the mountain pastures with the herds. From 1800 onwards, quite simple paintings have depicted this seasonal migration. The pictures painted by the "armaillis" are called "poya".

Intyamon Valley Path of the « poyas »

Between Estavannens and Lessoc, walk back along the Sarine to explore the Gruyerian villages where you can still see the very old poyas (long wooden panels depicting the summer ascent of cattle and their owners to the high alps).
