  • Cool place to see but for passionates only!
  • Are the ancient foundries of King Louis XIV. Yet with the charcoal ... Progressive mind replaced with black Coal Coke of the English. You forged iron bars unfinished and following Rails for railways.

  • Superb but only accessible place for payment... the owner is friendly if you set the right to visit 7 euros! If you want to stroll, go your way, or agree to a 3 km detour, the bridge is closed.. .and we do not cross the private site of the ironworks
