Oldest and largest mine area of the Massif du Canigou. It reached a peak of activity during the ninetieth and twentieth centuries. Worked before the French Revolution (1789), it ended in 1962. Settled on the North face of the Canigou mountain on 3382 hectares (8357 acres) miners worked for iron ore mainly in galleries, some are still visible nowadays.
Altitude 800 m
