Interesting hours if you not only want to lay in the sand. First time I saw such a factory and was impressed by the size . Recommend to take a walk.

It’s 20 minutes outside Trapani, a city of limited interest. But, where else are you going to seen a salt museum. I bought a bag of it at at least twice what it would cost at Morton’s.

A little out of the way but interesting exhibits and presentation by owner. Bought some flavoured salt as unique gifts for friends and family.

The twenty minute tour and time exploring and learning about the process of how the salt is collected is excellent. The family history is amazing and meeting the grandson, who gives the tour was a pleasure. Highly recommended!!

If you have not seen how sea salt is farmed or mined, this is a great place to visit. While the museum is small, it is chuck full of interesting facts and history of this process.

Salt production is year round, harvest normally august, we we're there in april and it was lovely, saw some activity, salt, the stay in all for 1 night is enough if you don't plan to ride a bike for a day
