Salt Pans

Salt Pans

Take a trip to the Tavira salt pans for an informative look at how salt is produced. These rows of neat, rectangular trays are impressive outdoor chemistry labs that are fed seawater from the nearby ocean. Through the process of evaporation, the salt is extracted and then harvested and sold as seasoning.
