Museum of Salt Fuerteventura

Museum of salt fuerteventura
In Las Salinas, in the town of Antigua, you find “Museo de la Sal” (Museum of Salt), it is a cultural complex developed on the premises of the "Salinas Del Carmen", and this saline was built around the year 1910.

The museum has as one of its objectives, to protect the remains of this ancient salt manufacturing industry, which was worked by the ancient inhabitants of Fuerteventura, even before the conquest of the island. This saline has the characteristic to fill the pools with seawater; they need no mills or complex channels for transporting water, the pools are filled with water when the tide rises. The process to get the salt is very simple, once the pool is filled; they wait until the salt accrues at the bottom of the pool and the sun evaporates the water. Several weeks after the sun has evaporated all the water and in the bottom is just salt left, which is then collected.
