At Sougraigne on the Domaine de l'Eau Salée, the Sals gushes forth, a salt spring with up to 60g of salt per litre, and which historically has attracted many protagonists: glass makers, jet miners, charcoal burners, woodcutters, shepherds, pedlars and of course, salt smugglers and the customs officers on their heels.
The Salines forest glassworks is a remarkable archaeological site not far from this spring, with the remains of its two heating structures being particularly well preserved: a melting furnace more than 6 metres long, with a double hearth. These furnaces operated from the mid-seventeenth to the mid-eighteenth century.
