Leintz Gatzaga/Salinas de Léniz and its Salt Museum

Leintz Gatzaga/Salinas de Léniz is a traditionally rural village, known for its salt-making. It is located at the top of the Upper Deba Valley, overlooking a spectacular forested landscape.  Its centre retains its typical Basque rural charm.

The Salt Museum, at the foot of the old Dorleta Castle, tells the story of the activity around its salt spring, which for centuries was the salt of life of the valley.  Don’t miss it!
