The salt industry has been closely linked to both the founding of Leintz Gatzaga and to its economic development throughout the years. Proof of this are the two "dorlas", copper boilers used to obtain salt, that can be found on the town's coat of arms.
The salt museum is located in the production facilities that were used for centuries, 250 metres from the town centre and on the road to Dorleta Sanctuary.
It is now possible to learn of the history of salt producers in the same place where it was produced, thanks to the conservation and reconstruction of some of the most significant elements found in the salt museum.
