Maras

Saline Perù, Perù

Geometric salt pools being harvested since the Incan empire Maras

Maras is a town located in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, where an ancient custom is still practiced, the use of pre-Inca salt ponds. These amazing constructions continue to provide the country (and beyond) with its pink salt which has been recommended by experts as a healthy option to flavor meals due to its curative properties. Aside from its nutritional value, the salt ponds of Maras are often visited for their spectacular scenery.
