Small village south of Vernet-les-Bains and higher on the Canigou Massif. Its district is widespread to the south leading to the Canigou Peak.
Mineralogical history merges with Vernet mining past at districts border sites as l'Alzina and la Pena peaks.
Casteil is world famous for its magnificent old roman abbey : Saint-Martin du Canigou, hanging on the slopes of the ravine.
Col de Ségalès, Gorges de Cady, Coume Mitjane and Mariailles are other mineralogical sub-localities.
