Pictures images photos of Trapani and Masala salt pans , Sicily. Images of Trapani salt pan windmills and of salt production. In the far west of Sicily are the coastal towns of Trapani and Masala. Between Trapani and Masala are lagoons full of salt pans. Sea water is let into a salt pan which is a flat square with low walls. The water is left to evaporate for a few days then it is pumped into another salt pan and so on. In this way the salinity rises in consecutive pans and eventually the salt crystalizes and can be dug out of the salt pan. The water is pumped between the salt pans by windmills which with the flocks of Flamingoes that feed in the pan make a picturesque scene. Trapani boasts some of Europe's oldest salt marshes and its milled salt is sold throughout the world.
