Salinas da Figueira da Foz
The Figueira da Foz salt pans are located in the estuary of the Mondego River. They consist of small units with many compartments, connected by a network of channels. Characteristic of this area are the salt warehouses, wooden buildings with a capacity to store between 150 and 200 tons of salt. To safeguard this important heritage, a museum, a three-kilometer walking trail and a tourist boat tour were created in these Salinas in Figueira da Foz.
