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.

  • Visit currently an hour. Comments are shipped quickly, but the site is beautiful. Stop at the shop at the end (by the currency here). I think a ballad by bike or on foot must be at least as interesting. Do but personally I stayed a little on my hunger.

  • 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.
