Guided tours return to Camillone Salt pan in the company of salt workers on Thursdays and Sundays from 13th June

The guided tours to the Camillone salt pan are back!

Here, the salt workers explain the process of salt production.

The last remaining of the 150 family-run salt pans, existing before the transformation in 1959, the Camillone salt pan is currently the open-air section of MUSA - Cervia salt museum. It is kept active by the cultural group Civiltà Salinara, which cultivates it producing tons and tons of "sweet" salt every year. The cultural group offers guided tours on Thursdays and Sundays at 5.00 pm starting from Thursday 13rd June. The visits show the work of the salt workers in person. The various stages of production are then understood by following the salt workers at work and the explanations of the guide. It is a magical moment that takes us back in time, to the moment when the large body of water was formed by many salty funds. Each of them was assigned to a family, who worked it with wisdom and particular care to produce a high-quality salt in large quantities, whose quality together with quantity would have been rewarded when production was closed.

And if it has the magic of ancient legend and the flavor of ancient history, the salt production process still fascinates travelers who get close to the salt pans and learn that the sun, the wind combined with the wisdom, constancy and strength of man can giving life to this precious and "tasty" element always present on our table.

The appointment is at the Salina di Cervia Visitor Center in Via Bova 61 at 4.30 pm. A salt worker will accompany the participants to the Camillone salt pan for the visit and will accompany them on their return.

Cost of the visit 2 € per person

The use of the mask is required.
