We’ve heard of buildings made of outlandish things (i.e. the Ice Hotel found in Sweden etc.). However, they are upping the ante over in Bolivia.
Lovers of sodium and all things savory ought to stay at the Palacio de Sal. Indeed, it would a dream come true.
For those a little rusty at Spanish, the Palacio de Sal is a hotel, where everything is made out of salt. OK, well almost everything: The walls, floors, ceilings, and majority of furniture are made out of the savory little crystals.
The building was rebuilt after environmental damage occurred due to the mismanagement of the first hotel. The brand-spankin’ new hotel is now located just along the edge of Salar de Uyani, which is fittingly known as the world’s largest salt flat.
The Palacio de Sal functions like your everyday, run-of-the-mill hotel. However, guests will have to look elsewhere for seasoning, if their dinner is bland! Guests are forbidden to lick, or chip at the salty walls and furnishings, in order to preserve the state of the building.
