Departure Time

9:00 AM
Receive a morning pickup from your Barcelona hotel, after which you transfer to the Saline Valley near Cardona, an important location occupied by humans since the Neolithic era.

Explore the Salt Mountain Cultural Park that occupies the Saline Valley today, learning about the salt mine that operated in the area between 1929 and 1990. Take a look at the on-site museum, providing a look at the Catalonian salt-mining industry, and then get a glimpse inside one of the salt mine’s tunnels, traveling 280 feet (86 meters) below ground to marvel at the stalactites, stalagmites, folds, and seams that line the walls of the shaft.

Continue from Salt Mountain Cultural Park to Cardona, and enjoy a walking tour of this historic medieval city. Check out Cardona’s unique collection of romanesque and gothic buildings, and marvel at the Castle of Cardona, an imposing defensive structure which has held more than its fair share of invading armies at bay. At the conclusion of your trip, you are transported back to your accommodations in Barcelona.

Duration: 10 hours 
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Castillo de Cardona, Conjunto
While Iberian remains have always been linked to the richness of the Saline Valley, the origins of Cardona are in its Castle. The village, which grew from the fortification, is today incredibly well preserved. Besides the medieval charm of its streets and squares, you will also find examples of Gothic and Romanesque churches, chapels and civilian architecture. The geographical location of the fortress, on the top of the mountain, perfectly meets its historical need to defend the access to the salt mines. The structure also enjoys a privileged view of the Cardener River Valley. From the XI to the XV century, the castle served as the residence of some of the noblest lineages of lords in the country. As a defensive structure for the salt mines, the castle endured several sieges throughout its history.
