More than 1200 alpine huts can be found in the area of the Fribourg Pre-Alps. They are known for their typical shingle roofs, which are part of the cultural heritage of the region. In the Gruyère Pays-d'Enhaut Nature Park, workshops are even held on shingle making
The Poya refers to the alpine procession of the cattle herds, which takes place every year in May and is accompanied by a folk festival in the village of Estavannens. In October, the herds return to the lowlands. The alpine procession is also celebrated, as it is the most famous of the traditional mountain festivals.
