  • FYI, the tour is done with a small train that makes you do around the House, one starts, after a journey of 30 minutes, stop for 1/4 of an hour near the mountain of salt (20 meters height), or have had a vision of the field, we're back and stop at the store for possible purchases. Start and end of tour at the second store. For 10 euros a visit, see bodies of water and a salt mountain, not much else. Disappointed and adding salty for my taste ^^ only the recorded commentary which are broadcast during the visit are instructive.

  • Friendly visit, the red color of the water and the view of the ramparts is great. It's great to go up a mountain of salt. .. .the children have enjoyed. Beware of mosquitoes and air can be fresh, provide a good vest.
