The dive site is closed due to landslide.
Barges is an old stone quarry where in the past stone and lime have been mined. Since 1958, the quarry is rented to several dive clubs in the region. Every dive have to be booked in advance and a small fee is required. During your dive in Barges you'll see remnants of the old mine: cars, rails, a wagon, old tools and even buildings.
The water can be reached by descending a staircase. Now enter the water via one of the floating pontoons and try to find the materials and submerged structures. There are five buildings under water between 28 and 40 meters depth and a three floor appartment.
Diving deeper than forthy meters is not allowed. Only excperienced divers. Be prepared when you enter the buildings.
