Era de la Sal

Former salinera dependency where years ago the salineros loaded their salt barges and transported them to the boats anchored in its bay, the Historic Monumental Complex of the Eras de la Sal collects a large part of Torrevieja's history.

As soon as you enter you will see the local attachment to this enclosure, with a plaque dedicated to all the salt workers who worked in the facilities at that time.

This set is made up of piers and piers that during the late 18th century were configured as the system for storing, shipping and loading the salt from the local salt mine.

Its construction began in 1777, in the most suitable place for the shipment of the salt extracted in what was then Albufera.

In 1997 we proceed to its restoration, highlighting the reconstruction of the existing wooden structure, the loading trestle and the hopper for the discharge of salt to the barges.

This venue is currently used to hold different events, among which the International Habaneras and Polyphony Contest, declared of International Tourist Interest, stands out.
