Walking between sky, sea and salt
What we will do A walk to discover this enchanted and timeless place, where the history of this land is intertwined with the tradition of cultivation and harvesting of salt. 2600 years of history told through a tour of 3 different salt pans, in sections covered by minibus and stretches on foot, walking through the salt tanks, thus discovering their differences. The visit to the salt museum, inside an ancient mill, will show how it was in the past and today, this hard work of collection, handed down from generation to generation by successive families in the ownership of the salt pans. Today a part of salt is still harvested by hand, and this very precious part, called white gold back in a day, can be admired while it surfaces crystallizing on the surface of the water on tanks that make up the "salinaro's walk". Crystal salt and flavored salt flakes called salt flower will make this experience even more memorable.
