Represented by the local School, Professor Vicente Martínez, along with a group of students, aimed to spread awareness of this unique world-renowned salt artisan trade beyond the region. The school’s booth garnered immense attention and excitement among the fair’s attendees, leaving them in awe of the salt-made ships on display and the replica of the Immaculate Conception church.
To wrap up the event, Professor Vicente Martínez, joined by Miguel Fernández, the manager of the Municipal Institute of Culture ‘Joaquín Chapaprieta,’ presented the traditional salt boat to Algorfa’s Mayor, Manuel Iván Ros Rodes, and his Vice-Mayor, Ana Lía Murcia.
