  • It is very interesting that till today this rather workforce intensive way of producing salt out of salt water and sediment is still used

  • A great day out and nice change from Porto. So easy to travel to, as only about an hours rail journey from Porto. Aveiro is a small town, "The Venice of Portugal". One must do the approx one hour...

  • Quite an amazing place to visit! You can see and experience how this ancient method of extracting salt is done, and the amazing different colors and contrasts left behind from the salt built up. It's a free place to visit, and quite nice to walk around. Due to the colors I would advise coming around the end of the day so you still have some daylight to explore, and be delighted with the amazing sunsets this place provides! If visiting during the summer please be aware that the parking spaces are very limited on site, but there are some more widely available parking spaces just 5-7min walking distance.
  • Really interesting to see. You can walk around the pans and also take a very brief boat trip to Ostraveiro. Depending when in the year you come you can actually see the salt. Now in April there isn't any yet so come in late summer or autumn to see the salt.
