“Salinash is a place where salt is harvested in Portugal. The place is tiny though, but the history is impressive - 800 years. Once the salt is at a great price. Salt could pay. Because of the salt war. Salt and bread met. Salt, to pay salaries. Portuguese word salary (salário) has the same root as the salt ( sal ). A lot of interesting things about Salinash was written. But, it is better to see once.”

“Uma aldeia típica que felizmente a associação de moradores fez questão de preservar. Tem vários restaurantes típicos, pequenas tascas com esplanada, cafés, lojas de artesanato e sal, e ainda conseguimos no período de calor, ver os salineiros a fazer o sal. Uma tarde bem passada.”

Market
“Santana is the biggest Sunday market in this part of Portugal. Santana is sometimes called the gypsy market. Most of the merchants are gypsies. Men in black. Older women are in black. Young women, girls and even girls, are dressed and painted all the colors of the rainbow. Huge earrings, rings, bright lipstick, shadows, blush. The goods on the shelves and ropes stretched everywhere are not inferior to the color palette of Gypsy makeup.”

“The Salinas here have produced natural rock salt since 1100 and still do today. Worth a visit and a good place for lunch is the Churrasqueria Solar do Sal which you book when you turn up but has queues at the weekends. Cheap fancy looking salt is a good gift to take home!”
