Sălacea commune (named after the Salt Road that crossed the locality) is located in a hilly area of the Ier Plains from the northern part of Bihor county neighbouring Satu Mare county. The geographic setting has had a major role in the life of the locality since old times; in present days here one can find a natural reserve and large vineyards. Local people gladly share the old Latin dictum, in vino veritas, and as evidence stay the rows of well-kept cellars built on the hillsides. There are about 970 such cellars, and the oldest one dates as far back as 1803. An historic monument, pride of Sălacea, is the Stone Bridge. It was built before 1840, entirely from bricks; it has 29.70 m in length, and four arches under which the Ier river used to flow.
