Salineras de Maras
Ancient salt pans in the mountains
A fascinating place: the salinas de Maras. There must be thousands of salt pans in which the water evaporates leaving back pure salt.
There are many similar sites around the world, - but usually
located at the seaside (e.g. the salt
pans I photographed on Gozo)!
In the late afternoon sun, the water in the pans looks like liquid gold.
