Tavira: Quatro Aguas

Sea salt basins at Quatro Aguas near Tavira. The name means "Four waters", because at this point the lagoons of the islands of Tavira and Cabanas come together with the Atlantic Ocean and the Gilão river. The method of sea salt production in the Algarve by evaporation of sea water goes back to the Phoeniciens.
