PAMELA is a satellite borne experiment designed to study with great accuracy cosmic rays of galactic, solar, and trapped nature in a wide energy range (protons: 80 MeV-700 GeV, electrons 50 MeV-400 GeV). Main objective is the study of the antimatter component: Antiprotons (80 MeV-190 GeV), positrons (50 MeV-270 GeV) and search for antinuclei with a precision of the order of 10-8). The experiment, housed on board the Russian Resurs- DK1 satellite, was launched on June, 15th 2006 in a 350x600 km orbit with an inclination of 70 degrees. In this work we present the measurement of galactic and reentrant albedo proton spectra in the energy range between 100 MeV and 300 GeV. The galactic protons refer to the period 2006-2008, showing evidence of Solar modulation effects even during the solar minimum.
