What an interesting place, still run by many individual families to produce a variety of salt types, pink, flower and normal salt. The source of the salt is from a naturally salty spring and is worth a visit if you are in the area. A...More

Another very interesting stop along the way on our bus trip of the Sacred Valley. The scenery and the salt works were really worth the trip. To those who chose not to do this day trip, you really missed out.
