Museu de les Mines de Cercs Cercs
The Cercs Mine Museum, dedicated monographically to coal, is a museum of technique and history and, at the same time, wants to be an interpretation center to explain and publicize the multiple and close relationships between this fossil fuel and the Geological, landscape, economic and human environment of Alt Berguedà. Today, mining activity in the Berguedà region has disappeared, which is why the museum defines itself as an interpretation center that relates technique and history.

The permanent exhibition is divided into two spaces: coal, its exploitation, the importance of mining infrastructures, transportation and the classification process prior to its use, as well as domestic and industrial fuel as the primary source for obtaining electricity.

Two audiovisuals of the most emblematic claims of the mining collective have recently been incorporated into this area: the events that took place in Fígols in 1932 and La Cerrada in 1977.
Finally, the mining house is visited . The visit is completed with the projection of an audiovisual on the Alt Berguedà mining basin and the guided visit to the interior of the mine where working conditions over time are analyzed.
