Que suis-je ?

Allez, je vous propose un petit jeu. Je ne décris pas la photo aujourd'hui, en attendant que vous deviniez de quoi il s'agit.

Laissez-moi vos suggestions dans la section réservée aux commentaires. Je vous donnerai la réponse dans les prochains jours.

Guess what it is ...

Let's play a little game today. What do you think the photo refers to ?

You are invited to leave your suggestion by writting a comment. The answer will be delivered in the following days.

It's a brick for sure but I have no idea what it is. The circle on top ...

Boy, it took me a whole day to figure out that the word "devinette" didn't have anything to do with the photo. Am I right? In that case, I'd say, this is the world's biggest oven... for pizzas and flat bread.

Is this in the Franciscan convent?

I think it is a photo looking up at the underside of a bridge.

'Devinette' is the French word for 'conundrum'. It is not the biggest oven and it was not designed for pizzas originally but you are quite right.


My explanation : this shot is the inside of a former bread oven. In the past, people were not supplied with electricity nor gas, so they had to find another way to burn their meals.

So they built ovens where they ignited a wood fire and let the inner temperature be boosted.

When the oven was enough hot, the burning materials were removed from the oven and were replaced by the dishes to be burnt.

You should note that this oven can still work :)

Comme dit précédemment, c'est un ancien four à pain.
