Les salins d'Aigues Mortes

La solde des légionnaires romains était en partie composée de sel, la salarium, qui donna le mot salaire. Les salins existaient déjà ici dès l'Antiquité.

Depuis le milieu de XIXè siècle, la Compagnie des salins du Midi exploite plus de 200 km² accessibles à la visite.

Visite en petit train : Durée 1h15 environ. Embarquez à bord du petit train qui va vous emmener en voyage pendant plus d'une heure. A son bord, à travers les tables salantes, découvrez comment naît le Sel de Camargue et pourquoi les eaux sont roses avant la récolte. Le travail du saunier, gardien de cette nature intacte, sauvage et généreuse n'aura plus de secret pour vous.

Un arrêt au Musée du Sel – Boutique vous permettra de découvrir l'activité salinière à travers les époques sur des photos et par une présentation d'outils et emballages anciens.
