  • It was excellent this visit, indeed there are things that we don't even know that they exist. I'm going back for sure.

  • The natural salt mines of Rio Maior are different than usual because they are located at the foot of the Serra dos Candeeiros and not next to the sea. The process is similar to that used in the salt marshes of the sea but the water comes from a well fed by an underground stream that crosses a salt mine and water extracted is seven times saltier than the sea. The whole thing is curious because we are located in a picturesque valley. The grant seems to date back to the 12th century. Interesting.

  • A morning well spent with family opportunity to visit, and buy salt and craft. There are some pubs and restaurants for a snack or lunch that I recommend
