Mines of the Pimorent: Archaeology already finds traces of mines in Roman times, but it was not until the 17th century that written sources were available. A first local exploitation gave way in the 19th century to industrial groups that abandoned the Catalan forges in 1918 and took advantage of the trans-Pyrenean railroad in the 20th century. The mine closed in 1966.
Downstream of the "Saut du Carol" bridge, you can discover a series of impressive waterfalls, especially in periods of heavy water. You will also see the old granite quarries for the engineering structures of Carol's Paris-Latour line and in particular for the construction of the Puymorens railway tunnel and the various viaducts, the most important of which is Carol's.
