An unforgotten fun
and educational village

ONCE UPON A TIME,
… LES FORGES

In a rural setting, a shady 5-hectare park, crossed by a river, lies an unforgettable village… A village of old but very much alive, where trades and tools from the old days take pride of choice once again. 5 km from Foix, come and enjoy a period of History with Philip (Zeze), Didier, Kamel the famous onsite blacksmith, shoemaker, baker and schoolmaster. They shed light on the actions and methods of a bygone but very revolutionary era. The space museum and its collection of 6,500 tools rounds off a visit full of moments worth sharing. Both the young and old will love it!
