SALE ET TERRA DE SALSIS TRAIL
Itinerary includes culture, nature and landscapes
Salt extraction is an ancient tradition, whose origins date back to Roman times and to the Ligurian and Celtic peoples, who inhabited these lands in even earlier times. The itinerary takes in culture, nature and landscapes. In an ancient document written on 29 December 877, the Bishop of Parma mentions the privileges received from Charlemagne, including “… sale et terra de Salsis”. Following the path, you enter places that bring you back to the origins of the land, inhabited by the “Salsi” even today: the millenary Castello di Scipione, the Pieve di San Nicomede, the Farnese-era salt pans and the pumping station where, in 1900, salso-bromo-iodine water was extracted. Finally, the trail leads to Rio Gardello and the Museum Centre: experiences that immerse visitors in nature and the geological and paleontological wealth of a unique landscape.
