The Salt of the Earth

The Salt of the Earth

- Salt Mines of Rio Maior

At the slope of a small mountain, as if by magic little mounts of salt reflect the sun like snowflakes.  Here, away from the coast, Salt springs from the Earth.  Memories of an Ancient Sea that bring life to the ancestral stories and telluric character of this place.

On summer nights, the skies come alive with a symphony of stars and fireflies.  Convento provides the perfect place to witness this inspiring sight.  You can take a tour of the Universe through the lens of our telescope.  Little while towels and and astronomer guide are available upon request, for stargazing sessions in the garden.

In the nearby Astronomical Observatory and Astronomy Park, with five mobile domes housing telescopes of various apertures and architecture, a planetarium and solar observatory, you can delight in the many wonders of the world above.
