Le Sentier des Argiles
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. The closure of the Puy-Blanc tile yard and the end of the quarry workings gave way to the development of an exceptional landscape, composed of a humid zone, a wood and two ponds edged with reed beds. Thus this site has turned into an area with a great diversity of natural habitats and species.
"Circuit d'Interprétation" (specially equipped with information boards to help you understand what you see around you.) This path was set up by the Causses du Quercy Regional Natural Park, the commune of Cambes and local associations in 2016. It is part of the Park Geosites network, to be found at www.parc-causses-du-quercy.fr
