A small village south of Saint-Paul-de-Fenouillet also famous for good wineries. Iron mines were exploited at the beginning of 20th century. Main mines were situated north of the village on the slopes of the Serre del Artigue del Baurien and even a cable used to carry the ore down to St Paul station. Other mines were situated west of the village. A gypsum exploitation is still active on site.
