Join us for a day trip to Salinas, Rior Maior, an old area built in 1179. We will participate in guided activities such as hand massage and exfoliation with salt. Salt is used in cooking so we can try our hands at making cheese salt. Further, salt extraction in salt pans (bring flip flops and shorts) will be demonstrated and tried like the old days. You can buy bread made in clay ovens, local wine and jam. Following these activities we will walk over to the olive press for olive oil tasting.
Lunch will be at a nearby restaurant (via bus). Soup, main dish, dessert, coffee, drinks included in cost.
Next we head via bus to Rio Maior for a Ginja factory tour followed by a short video showing harvest to the making of the liquor. Sampling of the produce then available in the shop.
