Salt exploration has always played a decisive role in the local economy of Figueira da Foz - the oldest references to this activity, as well as to Morraceira Island, date back to 1166. Recognizing the natural and cultural potential of salt as a development lever of the territory, the municipality acquired the “Salina do Corredor da Cobra”, in order to promote the reactivation and continuous maintenance of saline activity.
The Museological Center of Salt was established in 2007, as an information, education and awareness center to preserve a traditional activity and a natural product. It focuses on the interpretation, valorisation and dissemination of unique testimonies related to the county's salt flats.
This cultural and environmental complex includes a Salt Warehouse, a Pedestrian Route through the salt, a River Route through the Mondego River estuary and a bird observatory, asserting itself as a privileged place to enjoy a great fauna and landscape richness.
