  • Visit this historic site very well led by a guide living his passion for the place and its history. We discovered this unsuspected place, and filled a hole of ignorance in our ge culture, because for us the salt = sea. Very satisfied, recommend vraimment this visit, children are happy and the very affordable price: €20 for us 5.
