A unique station

A mountain health resort in the Pyrenees attracted the cream of Paris society in the late 19th and early 20th century to take the "cure".
An 11 kilometre extension to the railway line led to the building of a station in a cowboy western style railroad halt.
The buildings at Cautetets were constructed from wood in Bordeaux and assembled on site in 1898.
Although the station was closed in 1949 it was classified as a monument historique in 1981 and today serves as a bus station and is used for shows and concerts.
