Description

Dating back to the '500s, the salt pans represent for the territory of Marsala a very precious resource; you can admire a landscape composed of tanks, small canals, windmills, and piles of salt: a landscape that represents one of the most unique and characteristic environments of the Mediterranean. You can visit the Mill where, thanks to a multimedia path, you can discover the ancient and precious art of sea salt production. You'll continue your tour along a nature trail unique in the world and, in the company of your guide, you can join the salt harvest and live a truly unique sensory experience. Discover the different types of salt and inside the mill, you will also find the 'whole salt' strictly hand-picked, and the 'fior di sale' purely flavored. See how salt is not only used in cooking, thanks to its moisturizing power but it is also used in the field of cosmetics for the creation of products that aim at the 'well-being of the skin'.
