  • Palacio de Sal Hotel

    This hotel really is the salt of the earth - it's made from 10,000 tonnes of the white stuff. A whopping one million blocks of salt went into creating the stunning Palacio de Sal hotel and golf course in Bolivia, South America. It took two years to construct the breathtaking structure, extracting blocks of salt directly from the salt flat and using them as bricks.
