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.

  • Visit this lovely day train. Simple explanations of the guide. We could wait a little longer. But the ballad is very enjoyable and a must I think that salt is not expensive at the store. Good idea to memories

  • Very pretty landscapes (saline tables) we see that here (from the incredible colors)... ride train performed nice family... pity about the lack of proximity to the guide who unfortunately seen the number of people present and the pace of visits may be also present...

  • We did the tour train that moves a little but nothing too serious, the saline are very pretty, with a bit of luck and a good camera you can make some nice shot of birds. And little advice if you bought the Camargue salt it is really cheaper to store than in any shop in the city centre (around € 4 125 g at the shop and an average of €7 in the shops of the city centre). In short to be done at least once and salt you can go.
