Visita guiada a la Salineras Girones (Guided tours of Gironés salt farm)

Visita guiada a Salineras Gironés

Visit one of the very salt mines characterized by the production of salt with natural spring water.
The salt farms are very old; the first written document dates from 1492 but is believed to be prior to this time.
Our salt is characterized by its artisanal production using natural spring water.  Water in saline deposits is used in the process, which is accumulated in deposits, from where it is distributed into small pools.  The sun and the air evaporate, depositing the salt at the bottom of the pools
Collecting of the salt is done by hand, by using this method we obtain a valued natural product.
The salt is rich in minerals such as iodine, potassium, iron and magnesium.
We recommend its use with problems of anaemia or goitre
