Head to Cardona, a charming town in the heart of Catalonia, located just 100 km away from Barcelona. Enjoy the privilege to get picked up by your guide at your accommodation in Barcelona, by a private vehicle for you and your small group.
Once arrived in Cardona, feel the weight of history, just by walking through the streets, admiring the ancient buildings and exploring the unique natural environment that has shaped Cardona’s local culture for centuries.
Explore one of the most important salt deposits in the world at Salt Mountain Cultural Park. The natural landscape surrounding Cardona is one of the most special of Catalonia. Find, at the southern part of the town, the Salt Valley of Cardona, which has been used by humans since Neolithic times. The natural characteristics of the place make it unique in the world, which makes the site very well protected and preserved. Enjoy a moment to take in the beautiful views and breathe in the fresh country air.
The salt mine opened in 1929 and stayed in function until 1990, becoming one of the most important globally. Today the area has been transformed into the Salt Mountain Cultural Park, allowing visitors to learn about its history.
In the outdoor museum area, the old mineshaft 'Maria Teresa' still tells the story of the industrial exploitation of the valley. <
Get the opportunity to descend 86m deep into the Salt Mountain Mine. Witness mysterious and beautiful natural formations, such as stalactites, stalagmites and the colorful folds and seams.
Visit Cardona’s center, flanked by Romanesque and Gothic buildings still inhabited by the town’s historically brave population.
This place has survived some of the most important battles in Catalan history and strolling around its castle-fortress is like traveling ten centuries back in time.
Enter the Castle of Cardona, one of the best-preserved medieval sites in Spain. In 1714, during the War of Spanish Succession, it served as an impregnable fortress, and afterwards even the mighty Napoleon could not capture its sturdy citadel.
