Salt, along with lace, is the white gold of the town of Pag. The island’s salt pans are among the oldest in the eastern Adriatic seaboard, first mentioned in 10th-century chronicles. The traditional technique of natural evaporation was abandoned with the construction of a salt factory. Today the facility, Solana Pag, with its pans and clay pools for evaporation, cover about 2 million square meters and, together with 9 depots and a plant floor, make it the largest production plant in Croatia.
