Those of Realmonte are the oldest and largest salt mines all over the world.
Here there is a sumptuous church, called "the cathedral of salt".
It was carved by sculpting the rock directly and obtaining very special works.
It is located about 150 meters deep from the surface and 30 meters below sea level.
It can hold 800 seats and has exceptional acoustics.
Particularly beauty are the canteen, where a lamb was depicted, and the ambo, with a cross and the Easter candle.
