These salines or salt farms are located at the seaside town of Figueira da Foz, Portugal. They date back to before the Roman ocupation and for through the ages have been managed as family owned business handed down from generation to generation. In recent times many of them have been transformed to fish farms.
This is a protected natural area and many of the old wood houses were also used by the Napoleans army to defend themselves from Wellington troops that helped Portuguese army during the French invasions.
These series documents not only the landscape but also the people and their life stories within that landscape.
