Long Description:
FR Ce lieu n'a rien a voir avec les habitantes des ruches. Le mot "abei" désignait les troupeaux que les bergers regroupaient à cet endroit et qu'ils y faisaient bénir avant de partir en transhumance. L'endroit en a conservé le nom sinon l'orthographe.
EN This place has nothing to do with hive dwellers. The word "abei" designated the herds that the shepherds gathered in this place and that they had blessed there before going on transhumance. The place has kept the name if not the spelling.
