Ochre mines of Bruoux, Gargas

Gargas

A cathedral of colour sculpted from the ochre rocks of the Pays d’Apt. A subterranean journey that reveals the life of local Pays d'Apt ochre miners in the 19th century. Deep below the warm, radiant coloured cliffs, surrounded by pine trees, lie around 50 km of galleries, carved by ochre miners. This extraordinary testament to the world of ochre mining, is a unique and impressive site. This mysterious labyrinth is now a protected site, with 650 m of galleries open to visitors. A guide will lead you, in small groups, through the numerous man-made galleries - work that started in 1848 and ended shortly after the second world war. Outside the site, illustrated educational panels tell the story of the Pays d’Apt’s industrial history.
