Font Estramar

Between Fitou and Salses, just behind the Highway A9, lies the Font Estramar. With 191m it is one of the deepest underwater caves in the world. The cave dates back more then 5 million year, when the current landscape was formed. The water is crystal clear and it's worth seeing that place despite the noises of the highway. Even though swimming and diving is not allowed at this place, professions divers are authorized to discover the cave. The most famous being Jacques-Yves Cousteau.
Entre Fitou et Salses, à côté de l'autroroute A9 se trouve le Font Estramar. Profond de 191 metres il représente une des grottes des plus profondes du monde et date de plus de 5 million d'années à l'époque de la formation de la géographie du lieu. L'eau est aussi claire que du crystal et malgré des bruits de l'autoroute toute proche l'endroit vaut bien le detour. Seulement des plongeurs experimentés ont le droit de plonger à cet endroit, un des plus connus étant Jacques-Yves Cousteau.
