What to do in Salernes?
Salernes is a very typical Provençal village. You will start your journey by strolling through the streets around the main square. This shaded square is very pleasant in summer. Just next to the square is a beautiful small church dating from the 11th century.
During your visit to the village, you will be able to discover the workshops of the ceramists who perpetuate a very old know-how. It is the abundance of water in the Bresque valley that has enabled the development of the ceramic industry over the centuries. You can discover this prestigious history in Terra Rossa, the house of architectural ceramics.
Not far from the village, you can go hiking in the Saint Barthélemy valley. A pleasant itinerary will take you to the chapel of Croix-Solliès, which overlooks the village and thus offers a beautiful view of the valley.
