Lachenal has got nearly 20 resident. It has, like the other villages, its chapel and its “bachals”, basin built with rocks, which deserve to make a break to be contemplated.
The hamlet of Lachenal (1300 m height) has got a real history well settle down with its beauty and its heritage.

Its chapel Saint Jean in front of the “Porte latine” has been built in 1703.
Saint Jean, from Galilee, who was fisherman, was responsible for the protection of the Virgin by the Christ who was dying. Its symbol was an eagle. Patron Saint of the Turkey, he was implored often against poisoning.

Lachenal has got also a “bachal” that we can see in the village. A “bachal” is a big basin built with rocks which was used like a watering place for the quarter. They are still numerous in the hamlet of Bozel; you can find a “bachal” in each village.
