A day in the Sapal- "com pitada de sal"

 "com pitada de sal" -taken with a pinch of salt
Flor de Sal is the finest flower of sea salt. It appears as a thin layer floating on the surface of the brine. These first fragile crystals are carefully skimmed off every day in good weather conditions and only sun dried before packing. 
Click on the icon below - then sit back and follow the Marenotos ( salt harvesters ) going about their work on a hot sunny day, and perhaps you´ll get a taste for what they call the "White Gold" of the Algarve. Enjoy the sunshine!!!!
