The salt farms are in front of the mountain where the Ston Walls are located. They are large patches of land with borders where sea water is dryed to make salt. In the beginning of June, it wasn't the season so the area was all sectioned off patches of dirt. You take it for granted when you use and sometimes spill some salt that salt was used to pay people hundreds of years ago when they made the salt works and the walls to protect them. The mere idea that they did this is fascinating.

No one was at the Ston Salt Works when we were there so we did a self tour. It is a fascinating look at how the salt is produced and farmed. We were told that the Salt Works are still used doing the warmer months of the year. We even bought Ston salt at one of the grocery stores.

Well worth supporting. There are a couple of information boards but much more could be made of the place.

You are able to wander around the salt pans and the process is fairly self explanatory. Maybe take a small bag and help your self to a bit of the raw material! Or you can buy at the entrance.
