The Del Carmen Saltworks Museum is located in the Del Carmen Saltworks at Las Salinas, Fuerteventura.

The only saltworks in Fuerteventura still in operation, comprised of 10 intake ponds, nearly 1000 condensation ponds, the salt warehouse, the salt worker’s house and  the remains of the old quay.

The Saltworks produces fine white salt of the highest quality which is very rich in trace elements due to the cleanliness of its water and the method of obtaining salt from sea foam combined with the traditional daily skimming.

At the museum you can witness the whole process and discover its fascinating story.

Opening hours: Open daily from 10:00 until 18:00 between the 1st of May and the 31st of October, and from 09:30 until 17:30 between November the 1st and April the 30th

Admission:. Adult (Over 11) 4€ Child (4-11) 2.50€ Child (aged 0-3) Free

Del Carmen Saltworks Museum is located in Las Salinas, Fuerteventura.

The lime kilns are a sign of Fuerteventura's heritage. The calcareous stone was used to produce large amounts of lime which were exported to the other islands in olden times. Evidence of this industry are the salt works, and nowadays the only activity that can be seen is situated in the salt museum in the  delightful coastal village of Las Salinas del Carmen, Well worth a visit!
