#Suria's name could come from the Roman toponym Sorisa, meaning white. It was known for its large salt mines.This itinerary shows ancient #gypsium kilns and local geological and monumental heritage amidst nature on the hills of Serra del puig de Sanç. In this area, known as #LesGuixeres, there had been a small village inhabited in medieval times, and also a major gypsium exploitation which was intensified from the seventeenth century and lasted until the mid-twentieth century.
