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.

  • Loved it because if the wonderful natural phenomenon of red water. Very very beautiful sight. We went in by foot (without a guide) and payed approximately 8€ each. A few tips: Come in late afternoon for the most redness, but before 16.30 (because they stop letting people in here) Bring sun lotion, something to drink and good walking shoes. There is zero shade and zero spots to sit down in there. If you want to go a full circuit it'll take a long time. We walked inwards for like 30 minutes and back out again the way we came.
  • Expensive, especially the walk part which is only like 2 euros less than the train. Otherwise it's a lovely outing. Must book the train in advance ! Even though on their website they say you can buy tickets directly there, lots of people get there and can't buy any because all trips are full ! The kids were very disappointed about that.
