The Salt Valley is one of the most spectacular and best preserved inland saltworks in the world. Its value not only lies in its particular architecture or on its almost 6.500 years of history, or even in its geological features, biodiversity or landscape values, but in the union in perfect harmony of all of it in a privileged context. This Cultural Landscape is candidate to World Heritage List of the UNESCO and is listed under the Ramsar Convention as a wetland site of international importance

Did not know of it, didn't come here for it, didn't expect something like this here, but I loved it. I liked to see how they are trying to maintain the salt valley and the ride to the valley was beautiful.
