Torrevieja Salt Lagoons Natural Park

Places and routes | 16 May 2013

Torrevieja Salt Lagoons, maybe the most amazing place to see in the area of Ciudad Quesada. This huge Natural Park (3.700 hectares) with salty water from the sea is a protected area because of its unique vegetation and the fauna that lives there, mostly birds and flamingos. The water and mud of these lagoons are very good for health.

These are the largest salt producing lagoons in Europe and they have been used since the Romans times. It's a wonderful experience to have a walk with the family there, enjoy the wildlife and then to see the huge mountains of salt during the sunset.
