400 sqm. dedicated entirely to the garnet

50 instructive and timeless minutes to discover a craft tradition

A journey into the heart of age-old expertise

Come and discover a living heritage that is unique in the world! We have been sharing our passion with the public since 1995 by organising guided tours of our workshops.

From the ecomuseum to the gift shop, via the reconstructed mine and our workshops, we will tell you the story of the Catalan Garnet, from ancient times to modern day, and explain the successive techniques involved in its manufacture.

You can watch the meticulous work of our craftsmen live behind the glass panels of our workshops, and discover the most beautiful gems in our collection in our gift shop dedicated to our Joyaux Catalans® brand.
