Geology around :

The region of Salies du Salat is part of the ancient province of the Comminges. Indeed, it is located on the same level as the first foothills of the Pyrenées. It is in between two watersheds, mostly on the Salat’s and less on the Garonne’s.

This region has for a long time been boosted by the Salat, which is at once:

  • a way of connection,
  • a way of transport,
  • an energy source,
  • a source for building materials.

Moreover, the geology of the region is so that there exists under Salies a big “break” of land (Chevauchement Frontal Nord Pyrénéen, C.F.N.P.). This break brings back to the surface ancient lands (220 million of years old) and particularly salt, gypsum and ophite.

The conjunction of these raw materials and of the valley of the Salat, allied with the presence of numerous quarries, has made of this region a heavily inhabited and industrialized place in the past.
