Le Charolais-Brionnais, paysage culturel de l'élevage bovin is part of the Tentative list of France in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.
Charolais-Brionnais is a region in southern Burgundy known for cattle farming, specifically the breeding of the local Charolais cattle. The proposed property is the core of this region and includes areas of the Arconce valley and the Brionnais plateau. In the 17th century, farmland began to be converted into pasture, a process that ended in the second half of the 20th century. The resulting cultural landscape, the so-called bocage, is characterised by small fields surrounded by hedges and drystone walls.
