    We did visit this morning, train service. Handy for when you have young children, we made a short visit to the salt pans and later at the Museum where the owner explained how does salt mining and given many explanations involved and telling us stories about her family.

    Good experience to bring to life for children. It is interesting, and if you find yourself in the time of the salt harvest, generally between July and August, you will see all the hard work done by hand or with mechanical AIDS behind salt processing

  • 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!
