Museo del Mar y de la Sal
 
 
The Museo del Mar y de la Sal is a small museum in the center of Torrevieja. A maximum of 40 visitors can be admitted at the same time. However, the Museo del Mar y de la Sal is probably the most important museum in Torrevieja. It takes you through the local history of the city and pays homage to the two elements that are most dear to this city, being the salt and the sea. What is immediately noticeable in the Museo del Mar y de la Sal is the ship model made entirely of salt. Not only the ship model but also the church in the center of Torrevieja and a reconstruction of the old salt port were built in salt.
 
In a part of the museum you can view the tools that were used for the construction of boats. There are also various replicas of the boats that were built in Torrevieja. The Museo del Mar y de la Sal has even more to offer, such as commemorative plaques of the four Spanish submarines that belonged to the S70 class, an old pennant with the bleeding Mary and baby Jesus who belonged to the local fishing guild. Furthermore, there are also archaeological finds such as Roman storage vessels on display and you can view the remains of the underwater archeology of Torrevieja.
