Enjoy a trip into the depths of Catalonia to visit 'The Salt Mountain’ and travel back in time into the impregnable medieval town of Cardona.
Our expert guide will pick you up at your hotel in private transport to comfortably reach this historic town. Here you will be introduced to one of the most important salt deposits in the world, thus called Salt Mountain. After, with our guide you will walk through the streets and squares of an authentic Catalan medieval village to finally visit the impregnable Castle of Cardona.
Located in the heart of Catalonia, 100 km from Barcelona, in Cardona you can feel the weight of history in its streets and on the stones of its buildings, but also in its particular natural environment. Which has determined the way of life of its people and their culture.

The natural environment of Cardona is one of the most particular of our geography: south of the town is the astonished Saline Valley of Cardona, an open pit exploited since Neolithic times. This depression in the ground, elongated - ellipse shaped, has unique natural features in the world that have made it worthy of inclusion in the Plan for Areas of Natural Interest in Catalonia.

Here was opened, from 1929 to 1990, which was once one of the most important salt mines of the planet. Today the area has been adapted and transformed into the Salt Mountain Cultural Park. Its visit will allow us to see the museum area, located outdoors in the old mineshaft, 'Maria Teresa', which tells the story of the industrial exploitation of the Valley. Next, you will be on a guided tour 86m deep: inside the Salt Mountain galleries, you will admire the curious images produced by the various colorful folds and seams, and the creation of incredible stalactites and stalagmites formations.

After this trip to this millenarian natural site, you will visit the historic center of Cardona, flanked by Romanesque and Gothic buildings, while our specialized guide provides the most exciting legends and chronicles occurred in this enclave. In Cardona, the traces of its past discover the strong and brave character of its population.

Cardona has experienced some of the most important episodes in our history and walking through its streets and visiting the castle-fortress is like traveling ten centuries back in time. The Castle of Cardona is one of the best preserved medieval historic areas in Spain. In 1714, during the War of Spanish Succession, it was a real impregnable fortress and later even its citadel could not be taken by the redoubtable Napoleon.

If you want to discover real hidden treasures of Catalonia’s geography, history and architecture, choose this unique tour to Cardona.
