The Cordillera de la Sal is a small SSW-NNE striking intrabasinal foldbelt within the Salar de Atacama Depression and provides the best outcrops of the sedimentary record of the Preandean Depression. It is built mainly of continental red beds (San Pedro Formation, Oligo-Miocene), locally more than 3 km thick.

BAJO LA SAL (2008). Directed and cowritten by Mario Mufioz, this atmospheric Mexican police procedural is set in the remote (fictional) north Mexican town of Santa Rosa de la Sal. The town is situated on the edge of 100,000 acres of salt flats. During the salt harvest, the decomposed bodies of a number of young girls are discovered amid rows of salt.
