Reopening 2022: Easter Sunday, with a big egg hunt!
Once upon a time… THE FORGES
In a bucolic setting, a shaded 5-hectare park, crossed by a river, nestles an unforgettable village ...
A village of yesteryear but very much alive where the trades and tools of yesteryear have taken pride of place.
5 km from Foix, come and experience a time of history with Philippe (Zézé), Frédo, David, Fabien, the famous blacksmiths, clog maker, baker, basket maker of the site.
They lift the veil on the gestures and methods of a bygone but oh so revolutionary era.
The museum space and its collection of 6500 tools round off a visit rich in moments to share.

Young and old will love it!  
• Picnic area at the edge of a stretch of water, games for children, free kennel, conference room rental, art gallery.

Open Sunday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 18 p.m. - Continuous opening (7 days a week) in July, August and September until Heritage Days, i.e. Sunday September 7, 18.
