Aromatic herbs from Alt Urgell

Aromatic and medicinal herbs in the Pyrenees were traditionally gathered by ‘trementinaires' - the name given to the women who carried out this task during the second half of the 19th and first half of the 20th century, and who still do it today as family businesses.
