    A true symbol of the region, with its blood and gold colors, the TER Train Jaune has traveled all over the year for nearly 100 years ... The train trip, especially in the open cars, really looks like a panoramic film, punctuated by the swaying of cars: halfway up the steep slopes of the Tet valley, the train goes along the void and smoothly crosses large bucolic spaces, at the foot of the Canigou massifs, the Cambre d'Aze , Carlit and Puigmal, with in the distance the silhouette of the Serra del Cadi ... A real escapade in the Catalan Pyrenees!

    It was in the 19th century, in St Laurent de Cerdans, that the amazing story of the espadrille was born, the story of an ancestral craft that became a flourishing industry that supported an entire valley for almost a hundred years. Today, we make Catalan espadrilles known as "Vigatanes" (pronounced "bigatanes"). We've set up our workshop in an old espadrille factory that we've renovated and brought up to standard. We work mainly with the harmonious, contemporary colours of "Toiles du Soleil", bringing a modern touch to our creations while preserving the ancestral manufacturing process. The shop adjoining our workshop allows visitors to see the production process in real time.
