Latour-de-Carol-Enveitg train station is adjacent to the village. The station has the distinction of serving three separate routes (SNCF from Toulouse, RENFE from Barcelona and the Train Jaune from Villefranche-de-Conflent), each with a different track gauges. This requires through passengers and freight to change trains. In addition, before Spain's accession to the European Union and the Schengen Agreement, customs and immigration checks were performed; these are no longer necessary, so the people required for these have been withdrawn, leading to a decline in population and activity.


Population 1962-2008
