The Salt Museumis located in an old salt works within the Natural Park of Salinas, where salt water has been evaporated for centuries to make salt. The small museum that shows with original equipment and displays the process of extraction of salt in the past and present. It explains the characteristics and uses of salt and its importance in human history. It includes many historic artefacts and samples. Salt extraction remains the main economic activity in the area and piles of white salt can be seen in many places. There are viewing windows over the salt lagoons, which are an important habitat for wildlife that has been protected partly because it was needed for the salt industry.
