What to visit
Arles de Tec
Vallespir - France Route
1. THE MILL OF ARTS
The Mill of Arts and Crafts brings together workshops dedicated to artistic trades, as well as a shop that collects the creations of artisans and artists and the conservatory of weaving.
The visit to the old knitting machine room makes us relive this recent industrial past. (Free entrance).
2. SANTA MARIA DE ARLES
It is the oldest Carolingian abbey in Catalonia, founded at the end of the 8th century with the reconquest of Charlemagne.
3. THE SAINT TOMB
This sarcophagus is the ancient vestige of the presence of a Visigothic church founded in the 4th century.
There you can find the relics of the Patrons of Arles, Abdon and Sennen. From then on, inside the sarcophagus always fresh water falls that the popular faith sees as miraculous.
