Ston salt pans
The exploitation of the sea and salt production date from ancient times. The Ston salt pans were built during the Ragusan Republic when the trade with the Balkan hinterland was highly profitable, with about 15,900 ducats a year. In 1333 the Ragusan Republic bought Ston and by 1360 it was surrounded by walls. Due to the favourable climate and sea salinity, the salt pans, which are one of the oldest in Europe, were built. The salt pans are divided into 7 groups of pools for sea water evaporation and 10 pools for crystallization. All pools except one are named after Christian saints. The surface of the salt pans with the annual production of about 2,000 tons of salt is about 430 000 sq. m. During the summer, the salt pans are open to visitors.
