  • We came up with the idea to take a walk and at the last moment, quite by accident, we decided to visit the Museum. The decision delighted, thanks mainly to a "landlord" with enormous sympathy failed to tell the life of a salt works and to make us realize all the work behind it. A very pleasant surprise

  • Even in early August in the high season it was positively quiet. The guide was very informative and knowledgeable by the granddaughter of the founder. A sympathetic family business!

  • Small but informative Museum with competent guidance through the founder's grandson. Even with children worth a visit. Good food in the restaurant

  • This place turned out to be a highlight of my trip. Fascinating family business and able to buy the tastiest salt straight from ocean. Super cheap too. Great learning experience!
  • Nice but super hot with no trees whatsoever. Restaurant seemed nice.
  • Very nice but you have to choose the right time to visit. I came here in spring and didn't see much, because the season to harvest salt haven't started yet :-D
  • Buy the salt elsewhere (overpriced), but the food is very good and their tomato pesto is the best thing i have ever tasted.
  • This place is ridiculously cheap (2.50€) and the guide is super nice and informative. You cannot miss this beautiful museum!
