The Salt Mountain

Theatrical visit to the Salt Mountain: “Alchemy Project: The secret of the Liber Salis”

Description:

Brother and sister, Carlota and Tomeu Bartomeu, are research scientists with knowledge in lots of areas of science. They are descendents of GuillemBartomeu, fifteenth-century alchemist and author of the LIBER SALIS, or the Book of Salt, which compiles all his knowledge about the Mountain… and also his great secret. The centuries have gone by and now one of the Bartomeus invites us to take part in the last phase of the Alchemy Project: the discovery of a new mineral, a stone that will change the history of humanity.

This expedition will lead us into the heart of the Salt Mountain and teach us how salt formed and the ways in which it is mined, the different types of salt, etc. We shall enjoy it using all five senses and meanwhile release our imagination to reveal a magical world in which everything is possible.
