Day 3 - AÑANA SALT VALLEY 

Breakfast in the hotel.

The salt valley in the Alavese locality of Añana is currently one of the most spectacular and best preserved cultural landscapes in Europe. Its value lies not only in its unique architecture or in its more than 1,200 years of documented of history, not even in its geological characteristics, its biodiversity or in its prized landscapes, but in the union in perfect harmony of all this in a privileged context.

In the oldest town in Alava, and in what were waters of a vast sea 200 million years ago, stands the Añana Salt Valley. A magnificent outdoor cultural landscape (monument) formed over more than 5,000 eras: platforms on which the brine, saltwater, is poured to obtain salt through solar evaporation. A unique and extensive network of wooden channels distribute the water to the most remote corners of the Salt Valley.

During the morning we will have a guided tour through the Salt Valley, including salt production and SPA. After the visit, you will be able to taste some of the salts that are produced, such as wine salt.
