A visit to the Tanneries was on the agenda but we knew it wasn't going to be an aesthetically pleasing visit! The stench coming from the leather as it was being washed was appalling. They gave you mint leaves to carry to try to ward off the smell. What struck me were the terrible working and living conditions ( the families all lived on site) that the men had to endure.
