The Salt Valley Of Añana

Salado Valley, in the town of Añana, in northern Spain, is rich in salt but the terrain is unwieldy. This has lead to the development of some impressive structures consisting of staggered evaporation terraces, built with stone, wood and clay.

This exceptional saline landscape with its unique salt-related architecture, built to adapt to the complex topography of the site, is one of the most spectacular and best preserved cultural landscapes in Europe.
