Regarding

Covid-19 : ce prestataire a mis en place des mesures spécifiques supplémentaires en raison du contexte lié à cette crise sanitaire.

The garnet manufacture in Prades has won many honors : 2003 craft prize, Mercure d'Or 2008, Living heritage Company, Quality tourism, South of France, French Origin Guaranteed.
The town is the only center for such excellence in France and is listed in the Patrimoine Vivant. All those involved in making emblematic Catalan jewellery, from the lapidary who carves stone, to the jewellers who shape jewels and crimp garnets are represented. The guided tour starts at the Ecomuseum (historic tooling) and then proceeds to the manufacturing workshops to the restored mine (jewel history) and then ends in a retail center where works are exposed and sold.
