The Pesquiers salt flats, ecological and historical heritage of our region
Les Salins des Pesquiers
On 550 hectares, the Pesquiers salt marsh located in the heart of the Double Tombolo of the Giens peninsula in Hyères is one of the most remarkable natural areas of the Var coast.
This guided tour by Charlotte will plunge you into the history of salt and its exploitation from antiquity to the dawn of the 21st century, with the salt-making buildings that mark the spirit of the place and remind us of its rich industrial past that has largely marked the history of the city of Hyères, without forgetting the hard work of the men who produced this "white gold".
Today, after the departure of the last farmers, nature has reclaimed its rights and offers a superb refuge for birds in the heart of the Giens peninsula, and a specific flora acclimatized to lagoon environments.
