Salt Route

Torrevieja is sea and salt. Do you want to discover our origins? The Salt Route will show you Torrevieja’s raison d’être. The starting point is the Plaza de la Estación, a square where the town's old railway station used to be located. This is also where the Interpretation Centre for the Salt Industry is located, an essential centre when covering the history of the town’s salt production industry. Here you will get an in-depth description of this unique mining system, the only one of its kind in the world. The next stop is the Habanera Museum, which covers the origins of this Caribbean form of singing, established in the town centuries ago, do you now know why? Lastly, you will end you salt mining experience in the same place, where years ago the locals from Torrevieja would load their most highly-valued raw material.
