It is only natural that Palacio de Sal would be made out of salt blocks. Located south of Bolivia’s capital La Paz, on the edge of the world’s largest salt flat, Salar de Uyuni, it was the only material in abundance that was readily available. Although it would be clever to claim that it was a creative decision, the construction of the Palacio de Sal was based on the lack of timber at the time.

Using approximately 1 million salt blocks for the floor, walls, ceiling, furniture and sculptures, Palacio de Sal is a savory place to stay when on vacation. In order to prevent degradation, a rule was enforced to prohibit licking the walls. The Palacio de Sal boasts a dry sauna, steam room, golf course and, of course, a saltwater pool.
