Sant Francesc Interpretation Center

Heritage and culture

The Sant Francesc Interpretation Center is the ideal place to get to know the values of the Ses Salines Natural Park in Ibiza and Formentera. Immersed within the Natural Park itself, it is part of the outbuildings of the church of Sant Francesc de s’Estany, in the municipality of Sant Josep de sa Talaia.

Visitors will be able to discover an exhibition dedicated to salt, with modern images and ancient tools used for the extraction of precious white gold. it was carried out manually. It was men and their strength who were in charge of bringing salt to our homes and beyond our borders. Today, much of the annual production is still destined for northern European countries to salt cod. To conclude the visit, you will be able to see a magnificent audiovisual projection in which, without moving from your seat, you will have the opportunity to enjoy all the beauty of the Park, and its natural and landscape values, including the most inaccessible, those of our marine environment.
