The “Salinas del Janubio”, or Janubio saltworks, declared nature reserve are located in the South-West of Lanzarote, near the village of Yaiza. The Salinas are one of the representative landscapes of the island. In the past, one of the foundations of the island’s economy was salt production, but few remain operational except for the Salinas de Janubio and Guatiza. The southern salinar continues its traditional activity, despite the drop in productivity. It has a construction based on natural volcanic stone; with its windmills and the resulting product of macerating in salt cookers create a picture to remember. You can make a stop at one of the viewpoints that exist in the road to contemplate from afar this unique landscape in contrasting shades of white salt, gray, pink, with the blue waters of the Atlantic and the black earth. This symbol, part of the heritage and history of the island, was built in 1895, around a lagoon formed by volcanic eruptions that created a lava barrier between the sea and the space.
