Nin-Solana

The Nin Saltworks is one of the rare saltworks to produce salt in the traditional, natural and ecological manner; by using the energy of the sun and the wind, the sea evaporates in vast evaporating pans. Clean environment, specific climate conditions with many hours of sun and a favourable wind, as well as an excellent geographic position ensure that the Nin Saltworks salt is of top quality on a global scale.

The Nin Saltworks occupies an area of 55 ha in the Nin lagoon. It dates back to the Roman ages, as evidenced by the visible ruins of stone gates used to release the seawater to the pans. In 1550 Venice took control of the Saltworks and shut it down in order to establish monopoly over the salt on the Adriatic. 405 years later, in 1955, the Saltworks was once again established, and as of 2002 it has been operating as a privately-held company based in Nin.

The Nin Saltworks has been recognized as a must-see tourist destination visited by people all over the world, from Europe to Japan, thanks to its range of salt products, from industrial and consumption to therapeutic salt.
