The Tour

Fininho (Slender), the mine mascot, and his friend Salty, invite us to an adventure in which:
- At 230 m depth, under the city of Loulé, we discover the history of the rock salt mine and admire the 230 million years old geological formations.
- In an interpretation route on foot, inside the mine, with about 1.3 km, we discover the evolution of rock salt mining processes.
- The geological importance of the mine in the region and the applications of Rock Salt throughout the history of man until today are discovered.

This is the visit to the deepest tourist site in the country, which is simultaneously a place of mining work in an active mine, where Rock Salt exploitation remains in full harmony with Mining Tourism Activity.
