Well worth the visit
Oct 2020
We had no expectation on this recommended point of interest except it was historical site dating back to Phoenicians
When we arrived late afternoon we were surprised how many people were there sitting outdoors waiting.Waiting for what? It was only later just before sunset when the sun breached what was a cloudy dark sky we got the answer.
The sunset was magnificent reflecting in the salt pans accentuating the whiteness of the sall piles with the windmills which were used to crush the salt creating beautiful mirrored images
We struggled to find the location in spite of asking many locals as it is not well sign posted
Just a warning that the car park is free but there are unofficial personnel requesting €2 to the unfamiliar

Interesting
Sep 2020 • Couples
We didn’t have time for a tour which was a shame as it would have been nice to be able to get closer to the salt pans. The Exhibition was interesting with both Italian and English explanations. The girl in the gift shop quickly identified what language visitors spoke to tally with the film shown. Which was good despite it feeling like it had been made in the 70’s. There are now 2 men demanding a euro of everyone parking a car. I don’t know if they were official or not after reading one of the earlier posts but at least it wasn’t too expensive.

We went early to avoid the evening rush, which we had got stuck in a couple of nights earlier. In August there are coaches and thousands of cars parked/abandoned everywhere as it is a popular spot to photograph the mill and the salt pans at sunset. So trying to drive past the entrance on what at one end is a single track road is an absolute nightmare!

This is the beautiful city of Marsala, in the Trapani area, in the west side of Sicily Island. In the pictures you could appreciate the natural salt depot.

Really interesting look at the history of producing/collecting sea salt
Feb 2020
I was not familiar with the way sea salt is harvested, and I really enjoyed this visit. There’s a great video that features the traditional method, which is mostly by hand. We could see how the windmills were used to move water between the ponds, how the slow evaporation resulted in salt crystals, and how the salt is shoveled and processed for distribution. It was a short stop, maybe 45 minutes, and tickets are about €10 each. There’s an option to take a boat over to a once-private island that is now a museum, which would extend the stay to maybe a half day. During higher season there is also a food and beverage bar open to the public.

On our way
Jul 2019
On our way to Isole Masola, we took a stride over this salines and it was very interesting. Small, but completely different other salines I have visited. Since it is where the mini port is alocated, in order to go to Isola Masole, it is very good to go and take a look!

Worth a stopover if you are in the area to see these working salt flats
Jan 2019
These are working Salt Flats, over a wide area; harvesting salt from the sea. There are also windmills still working that move water from the sea into the salt flats from the sea. Worth a stop over if you are in the area.

Not really worth it
Nov 2019
Salt pans are salt pans where ever you see them. Nothing really special and we got annoyed by being hassled by a local guide touting for business.
There is not really much of interest to see in or around Marsala and we were slightly disappointed with our trip.
However we did enjoy driving along the back roads past Trapani and up along the coast. Beautiful scenery.

Harvesting Sea Salt
Oct 2019
This is an interesting stop you should make. There is a movie and tour of the facilities that explains the method of harvesting sea salt. You can also buy the salt in the gift shop at prices way below retail. Try to arrive close to sunset for magnificent views.

So much of the white stuff!
Oct 2019
I always knew that what the French call “fleur de sel” and the Italians “fiore di sale” was very expensive salt and was supposed to be the best. What I did not know was how it's made and why it's so valuable. After a visit to this place I found out that the different way they collect it allows for much more of the good stuff (like magnesium, potassium and other good minerals) to stay in. There were eight of us in this group and we started with a short movie explaining the whole process, followed by a tour of the salt mines and ending with a delicious tasting: never though you can do so many appetizers just with salt, herbs and fruits! The gift shop is also good: a great place to buy unique presents for people back home!

Beautiful sunsets
Apr 2019 • Friends
Depending on where you are staying you can even walk to this place. But most common is to drive there.

Seen it during the day and at sunset. As you can see in the pictures, sunset is by far the best time of the day to admire the view.
