It was organised by the Sant Josep Town Council, the Consell d’Eivissa and the Natural Park Ses Salines d’Eivissa i Formentera, as a commemoration and tribute to the people who worked in the salt flats, to raise awareness of the traditions surrounding the manual extraction of salt through different activities.
