    Come and explore the rich industrial past of the Puy-Blanc mechanical tile plant which shaped the landscapes and natural habitats of this site. Transformed by Man over a century of industrial activity, this stretch of clay, covering about thirty hectares, was originally constituted of a wooded area, cultivated fields and pastures.
