La Narbonnaise, France

As you enter the French Department of Aude, you reach the protected area of ‘La Narbonnaise’. For the next 50km you will be plunged in this cultural landscape with its pristine coastline, rocky terrain and wetlands. The evaporation ponds that follow the coastline make use of this ancient technology to extract salt from sea water. At the end of this time-travel experience, the picturesque city of Narbonne gently lulls you back to civilisation. © (
