Salinas de Oro
Locality of 115 inhabitants located in a small high 683 m high, in the foothills of the natural park of Urbasa-Andía. It is 27 km from Pamplona and 23 from Estella. The waters of the River Salado and other fountains of the municipality are resourceful for the obtaining of salt, activity which the name of the locality is from.
The beautiful natural environment, that this municipality has, highlights, next to buildings distributed through the urban core with shields of the XVII and XVIII centuries of Baroque and Rococo style.
About 500 m from the urban core, the threshing floors are where by evaporation, the salt is obtained. Without hesitation the main activities are the traditional and handcrafted activities of Salinas de Oro with its salt mines. If the most of these were abandoned, today this handcrafted way to extract salt still lives. Nowadays a salt mine is advantaged and is active. It is one small familiar business, in where the salt is traditionally extracted.
This activity is only made during the summer months from May approximately to August.
