The more than 5,000 salt evaporation pondsin Valle Salado de Añana (in Salinas de Añana) give this area in the central part of the Cuadrilla its true identity. In the Middle Ages the town's development revolved around salt, and now it does so again.

The Valle Salado de Añana (Salt Valley of Añana), Candidate for World Heritage by UNESCO, has become a must – visit point. A unique cultural landscape, visits to get to know the handmade process of salt await you. Additionally, through workshops you will be able to feel like 'a salinero' (a producer of salt) and enjoy a very unique saline SPA experience.

Well known Chefs such as Aduriz, Berasategui, Subijana, Atxa and other Michelin star chefs, support the great gastronomic potential of the salt from Añana.

The whole historic village of Salinas de Anana, with the Palace of Ozpina (today a rural hotel and restaurant), the baroque palace of Los Herran; at the top of town the convent of the "Comendadoras de San Juan de Acre" and in the south the parish church of Santa María de Villacones.
