Paulino Salinas left his home village, Beire, to work as an apprentice at a confectionery in Pamplona, moving at last to Tudela where he set up his business in 1870, “Salinas, fábrica de dulces y mantecadas”.
This way, the Salinas family, along six generations and more than 140 years of history, kept producing confections and patisserie.
Although the “mantecadas” are the star product which has given it fame, Casa Salinas also produced other delicious specialities bothe local and international, such as Topos, Grignotines, Turrón , Apfelstrudel, Truffles, Chocolate.
In December 2008, Paulino Salinas, lacking someone to keep after the business, retires and closes the emblematic Casa Salinas.
But before retiring he passed on his knowledge, recipes and ethusiasm to a young couple who in January 2009 reopens “Salinas, Fábrica de Dulces y Mantecadas”
