Tiébélé, a village in Burkina Faso, West Africa, is known for its amazing traditional Gourounsi architecture. Houses are made of a sun-dried mix of clay, soil, straw and cow droppings, mixed by foot to create strong pottery-like structures. The walls are painted with colored mud and chalk and tell an expressive story of the ancient tribe’s culture.

The cave’s Gaelic name, An Uaimh Bhinn, means “the melodious cave.”
