Pitres has had the local responsibility historically. It has one of the most extensive and better hoisted squares of the region that some authors date from Roman time. The slyness of its inhabitants is well known and recognized. In a certain occasion it occurred to someone to ask the local governor the concession of a seaport. Although the request was bizarre - Pitres is at great altitude over the Mediterranean level – it made that its authors had the nickname of Barbarians. Instead of taking it badly, the neighbours have instituted an amusing and crazy program of celebrations, during which “spit” sardines in the ground and they water them so they grow fat and substantial.
