  • Quaint and interesting museum that details the salt collecting process. Restaurant on site with fresh sea food. You can purchase salt there as well and are allowed to walk amongst the pools and observe the process first hand.
  • A little treat of a museum. Not very big at all but €2.50 buys you entrance and a little guided tour (in italian- enquire about English). Tales of Phoenician occupation and the science behind the saline and what makes good salt makes this a good stop.
  • Lovely wee museum with great views. Saw some flamingos too.
  • great little tour and explanation of the salt business through history.
  • The museum has also a very good restaurant. At Evening the area is a paradise for photographers.
