  • Very good job done by mama chigou
  • Very friendly welcome, but really limited interest. Especially during the rainy season when salt production is at a standstill. Small circuit between several huts, one for each stage of the production of salt. The facilities are poorly maintained. 3 € / entry + small salt shop Credit card is not accepted.
