Visit to Salinas | Marinha da Noeirinha
July 26 | 16h00 | Check map below for meeting pointSalt of Aveiro is a very valuable resource in the history of Aveiro. The production of sea salt – locally cherished as “white gold” – had a significant expression in the 60s of the 20th century, with around 270 salinas, producing around 95,600 tons/year in 1966. In the 1960s, the activity began to decline, not only in terms of the number of active salinas, but also in terms of production volume. Currently, only 7 salt production stations are in operation and only a few continue to bring us Salt from Aveiro and ensure that this art continues to last in our days and not just in memories.
