GEOroutes Pyrenees

GEOROUTES PIRINEOS is a small company aimed at disseminating Pyrenean geology to all audiences in a rather scientific way. To do so, our experts use graphic material and try to make scientific language –which may sometimes be a bit stilted– more comprehensible for all. 

These explanations will allow you to know why there are fossils in the mountain, why continents are moving, how volcanos are formed and why rocks get folded?

Therefore, GEOROUTES has created a series of routes with different difficulty levels so that everyone can enjoy and learn about the planet we live on.

Mining territory
We offer you two options. On the one hand, located at 2,300 metres above sea levels, the wild lead and zinc mines of Liat will allow you to learn about how the minerals used to be transported: the little towers that are still standing, the 13-km cable car that led the minerals to the treatment plant in Pontaut, the mining buildings, the vertical bridges, etc. And on the other hand, Victoria mines, designed and adapted to visitors and families, where you will find out about the mining operations as well as about the history and life of the workers.
