4. Tuixent: Museum of the Trementinaires and Route of the plants

A visit to this museum will allow us to know who the turpentine plants were, what herbs and remedies they marketed.

Visit to the Museum of the Trementinaires. The turpentine workers were collectors and street vendors of turpentine and medicinal herbs. They walked from Tuixen to the plains of the interior and the Catalan coast. The last trip was made by Sofia d’Ossera, in 1982. The museum is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 am to 2 pm and from 5 pm to 8 pm; during the summer it opens every day. Tel. 973 370 030.

The Tuixent Flora Center and the permanent exhibition “Singularities of the Flora of the Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park”, together with the turpentine botanical garden, form a museum and leisure facility located on the outskirts of the town of Tuixent, in the old forest house.
