Once upon a time ... LES 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 are taking 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 6,500 tools complete a visit rich in moments to share.
Young and old will love it!
• Picnic area at the edge of a lake, games for children, free kennel, conference room rental, art gallery.
