Cardona and Montserrat Trip

We'll meet at your hotel in Barcelona at 9 am and get on a bus to the Barcelonan municipality of Cardona. After 1 hour 30 minutes, we'll arrive in this historic town which is famous for being home to the Salt Mountain Cultural Park and one of the best-preserved medieval castles in the country.

Our first stop will be the Cardona mountain. With a surface area of more than 100 hectares, this potassium salt mine is one of the most important in the world, and it grows every year! We'll descend 86 metres down to contemplate the thousand-year-old stalactites and stalagmites of salt inside and we'll learn about the history of the industrial exploitation of the valley.

After exploring the Salt Mountain, we'll head to Cardona Castle. This 886 fortress built on the top of a promontory combines an eminently Romanesque style with Gothic details that will take us back to the Middle Ages. The location of the castle will allow us to enjoy unique views of the Cardener river valley and the Saline valley.

Our excursion will continue with a guided tour of Cardona's historic centre, a trading village that became the centre of an important market and a meeting point for travellers arriving from the south of France and the Pyrenees. You'll love this medieval jewel!

We'll return to the original starting point at around 7 pm.
