Tavira salt pans

In Tavira, they talk of “Tavira snow” and “Atlantic cream” in reference to the sea salt produced in the local pans.

The Tavira salt pans, in the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, form mountainous white heaps along the lagoon shore flanked by tanks in which stilts, flamingos and other birds feed.

Discover the traditions to salt farming, observe the birds and visit the historical landmarks of the city of Tavira.
