The Salt Lakes of Torrevieja Boost Tourism

Did you know that wet salt extraction is only found in areas like Torrevieja, Spain?

It’s a totally unique way of processing salt and the entire industry almost ground to a halt over a leasing dispute.

Luckily, this article reveals that a leasing agreement was signed in November that will continue salt production until at least 2039. Torrevieja is nicknamed “the City of Salt,” and this leasing agreement means that for the first time, visitors will be able to watch this unique salt extraction process.

Nueva Compania Arrendataria de las Salinas (NCAST) is the leaseholder, and they’ve committed to help preserve the history of the City of Salt and increase tourism. Very nice article from
