The Ettore and Infersa Salt Pans, created in Phoenician times, are the undisputed protagonists of our thousand-year history. A living testament to an ancient and valuable craft and product: the saltmaker and sea salt. One element that dominates the scene is the majestic and unmistakable Mill with its six large blades-unique of its kind-and its red pointed dome. For centuries and still today, during salt harvesting periods and by the sheer force of the wind, the blades of our mill turn, activating a mechanism that sets in motion large, ancient stone millstones that have ground, and continue to do so, enormous quantities of salt crystals. Today, thanks to a skillful conservative restoration, it is possible to access the interior of the mill; observe its complex working mechanism, made with the use of precious woods, such as Oak, Chestnut and Guajaco (or holy wood); and enjoy specially created multi-lingual multimedia paths that will help you understand the complex workings of a salt mine, one of the few modern industries with an almost zero impact, since it is based on the use of natural resources (and energy): sea, sun and wind.
