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.
