Since 1967, salt has been extracted at the southern tip of the island. The knowledge about it brought Don Luis Rodriguez from Lanzarote to La Palma and made sure that the salt production revived here.
The salt production happens in the saline of Fuencaliente still completely by hand. The only technical aids are a drying oven, a salt mill and two packaging machines. Almost without exception, it is produced in the summer months, in winter it is hardly possible to win salt on La Palma, the precipitation dilutes in the truest sense of the word again and again the brine. Weather dependence is one of the determining factors in sea salt production. From clean Atlantic water, wind and sun, one of the purest and most indispensable foods.
