Hikers walk down a trail to Salineras to see the natural, ancient salt beds. 500 years ago, the Incas built salt pans in order to gather salt, primarily to create salt licks for cows. For the citizens of Maras, Salineras are crucial for profit, as they are responsible for a certain number of plots that get packaged and then sold.
