Hola!

Nosing around looking at mining issues (salt,coal, silver, gold) I found this highly informative site and now theres a zillion places I want to visit around here.

I was also looking at the Basque need for salt for the cod industry so a number of areas are connecting up for me at present so I dont know where to post what. No doubt Clive will put me right.

I came across these remarkable salt pans in Alava on our way to Zamora last month. I've never seen anything quite like this before. They are currently being restored. They're in Salinas de AƱana and the excellently-named Valle Salado.

It's great getting lost sometimes.
