1200 years
of salt production

Grande Saline of Salins-les-Bains is a high testimony of industrial salt production. As one of the most ancient factory in France, it combines technological development with exceptional longevity.
Its business model reflects exemplary management of natural resources.

Going into the wells reveals a 12th-century gallery preserving a 19th-century bucket wheel that is still functioning, pumping salt water on the underground before being sent in the evaporation’s room a symbol of working-class memory.
