Visite de Salies en Petit Train Touristique

City guided tour, village in Salies-de-Béarn

Here you'll find typical 17th- and 18th-century houses, narrow flower-filled streets and, at a bend in one of them, the Musée du Sel et des traditions béarnaises (Museum of Salt and Béarn Traditions). Just a few steps away, the spa district, with its old hotels and palaces from the Belle Epoque, rubs shoulders with the Moorish-style spa.
    The little tourist train takes you on a journey back in time through the town's different districts (30-40 minute ride).
