View from Barbarossa Tower, Gruissan
View from Barbarossa Tower, Gruissan

When the clouds come up and the wind is blowing, no better place to climb is the Barbarossa tower at Gruissan. Look across the étang to the hills of the Corbières, around to the monumental cathedral at Narbonne, or across the Mediterranean, and many miles of beaches, where in the heat of Summer thousands bathe, and elsewhere there are mountains of salt, ready to spice up meals.
