Salt Mine

Interesting
This mine, in existence for three centuries, produces between 90 and 150 tonnes of salt a day. It contains some 40km of galleries, piping, wells and staircases originally hacked out with sledgehammers. The visit to the section of the mines that has been turned into a museum takes place on board a little train and on foot.
