Salin d'Aigues-Mortes, Aigues-Mortes

With a foundation dating back to 102 BCE, Salin d'Aigues-Mortes is a seaside commune surrounded by well-preserved medieval city walls. It's also home to the Tower of Constance, built on the site of the former Matafère Tower that Charlemagne constructed in 790 CE. Despite the town's origins, most of the existing structures were created during the Middle Ages. Explore several structures designed by various monarchs, as well as the location where 45 Templars were imprisoned and tried. You also can visit the Chapel of the Gray Penitents, Chapel of the White Penitents, the Church of Notre-Dame-des-Sablons, and Saint-Louis Square, which contains the famous statue of Saint-Louis.

  • Nice but I was expecting to see more things, birds, for example, and more details to go see the packaging but it's very nice and informative

  • Well interesting visit with clear and instructive information. The train takes us among the salins. It's amazing all these dunes of salt. Our driver was very friendly.

  • Super interesting but beware of mosquitoes. Only negative: can not necessarily be family in the train.

  • It is my first on Camargue, and this salin is very very nice, for me September it is the best month to see this beautiful location, the water is pink and the air no too hot. It is possible to see flamingos and other bird tipycally of this zone. In the middle of the tour is possible to buy souvenir and salt. Good tour with children!
  • A nice place to visit with the kids. If you are interested in salt, how it is made, the difference between the quality you are at the right spot. It is also nice to make a good picture of Aigues-Mortes.
  • Great visit to the salt flats. You'll embark on a one hour tram ride that will show you the salt basins while learning about the ancient techniques still used.
  • Not bad, but maybe is better the tour with bike if you enjoy taking pictures. Train is a bit the same after 30 min despite the tour takes to a salt mountain and the guide explains the salt production.
  • Nice place to visit and take a tour.
