Discover with us the day-to-day of the Salter in the extraction of one of the indispensable ingredients for the kitchen, Salt.
With a History over eight centuries old, the Rio Maior salines constitute an authentic living museum where the way to collect the salt is the same as the Romans used two thousand years ago, getting the best artisanal salt.
The Rio Maior Salines are the result of a whim of nature. A saline source of salt mine, extensive and deep, crossed by an underground stream, feeds a well from which water is extracted seven times saltier than the Atlantic Ocean. The oldest document known is dated 1177, but it is thought that the use of rock salt would is made since pre-history.
