The Seille is the backbone of the Saulnois area (Pays du Saulnois). The small river was a main thoroughfare for the flat-bottomed barges filled with “white gold”, as salt was termed, from Dieuze, Marsal, Moyenvic, and Vic-sur-Seille and managed to preserve its remarkable heritage linked to this period of salt mining. Vic-sur-Seille is where the local painter Georges de la Tour entered the history of art thanks to his chiaro-oscuro technique, and the town hosts a remarkable museum devoted to the artist.
