A must see if you are in Camargue. The Salin or salt marshes are still supporting the local economy even if in a diminished role. The Salin offers vast spaces, pink flamingoes and other wildlife, vibrant colors and serenity.

Nature never seems to amaze me. Salin d'Aigues-Mortes brings pink to a whole new level. It is somewhat mesmerizing. Even my teenagers enjoyed the tour. It was educational to learn about how the salt is mined from this region.

We travelled through the Salins of Aigues Mortes. What strikes one is the scale of the pans. Reaching out for miles, towards the sea. Very impressive and strangely beautiful.

Well worth the time visiting this lovely town. A must is a walk on the ramparts and climbing the towers, the views are fantastic on a summers day.
