Laguna dello Stagnone

Since Roman times the margins of the lagoon have provided ideal conditions for extracting
sea salt, and salt pans and windmills abound.
The variety of colours in the concentration pools, the heaps of purified white salt, blue
skies and mill sails give the area a beauty all its own.
