Salt Valley of Salinas de Añana holds its Salt Fair at the beginning of July, where the main dish is the “La memoria del Valle Salado” light and sound show which begins at ten o’clock at night when the darkness of night takes over the light of day.

It is a rare opportunity to discover this truly unique landscape from another point of view. More than a hundred salt workers theatrically act out the past, present and future of the salt works, embodying all those people from Prehistory, the Roman Empire, the Middle Ages or the French invasion that left their mark on this place.

During the hour and a half that the show lasts, the wooden frames and salt pans are filled with sounds and lit with a multitude of colours to create a magical atmosphere.

Seating is very limited and tickets are usually sold out, so it is advisable to purchase tickets in advance at the Salt Valley Visitors’ Centre or the Online Shop
