Les Martinets du Lézert (Groupe)

The copper foundries of La Bastide l'Evêque existed in the 14th century and stopped working in the 19th century. The name "martinet" refers to the water powered hammer used in the foundry. Here, copper was beaten out into "coupes noires" (black cups) which were then sent to be finished elsewhere, including to coppersmiths in Villefranche. Today, the Ramonde foundry has been brought back to life by the Martinet Association
" Entrance fee 3€ per person and one free every 20 persons. Free for the driver and organiser. The martinets of Bastide l'Evêque existed in the 14th century and stopped functioning in the 19th century. Copper was melted in the Martinets and cauldrons called 'Black cup' were created. They were then supplied to "Païdouliers" who finished them by affixing the handles."
