An extensive wilderness and a site of industrial archaeology, within a still-operational plant, combine to tell the story of salt, complete with vintage backdrops, immersive projections and a route encompassing salt pans, mountains of “white gold” and wild fauna.
The visit lasts about two hours and includes: a free-to-explore tour inside the historical buildings restored as they were on '30s and a guided tour on board of a wheeled train to discover the production cycle of salt and the naturalistic area.
Seats on the train are limited, reservation is thus highly recommended.
From March 1st to May 31st and from September 1st to October 31st: 10 am – 6 pm . Train departures: 10.30 am, 12.30 am, 2.30 pm and 4.30 pm
These opening hours shall be applied in case of good weather. If the visibility during the day make it difficult to operate safely, visits to the saltworks will be suspended.
*with the exception of specific events, when the additional event charge will apply.
