Aperlai is one of the ports where valuable purple colour is produced from snails in ancient times. Paints of purple-coloured fabrics and other purple materials were obtained from this area. In that period, a bad smell spread around due to production. We can still see some remnants. We will go to our boat, which is waiting for us.
