Armillas saltworks

Salt works located in the Barranco de Las Salinas, where common salt, halite, has been historically exploited. They were probably already exploited in Roman times, and surely in the Middle Ages. They were active until 1966 and nowadays an extraction wheel and some rafts are kept in relative good condition.
