All About Salt

ALAS project was a transregional initiative of Lesvos, Figueira da Foz (Portugal), Piran (Slovenia) and Pomorie (Bulgaria), aiming mainly to rescue traditional salt-pans in the respective areas. The project name (ALAS) refers to the homophone Greek word άλας (salt).

The project was financed by the European Committee, in the framework of the programme ECOS-Ouverture. The most important infrastructure resulting directly from the ALAS project was the founding of the first Museum of Salt in Greece.
