About
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.

What to expect
  • After morning pickup at your Barcelona accommodations, travel roughly 62 miles (100 km) into the heart of Catalonia to reach ‘Saline Valley,’ home to an open pit of natural salt deposits. Used by humans since Neolithic times and operated as of one of the world’s most important salt mines from 1929 to 1990, the area is now preserved for education as the Salt Mountain Cultural Park. Learn about the mine’s history at a museum housed in the old ‘Maria Teresa’ mineshaft, and then descend 282 feet (86 meters) below ground for a guided tour of the Salt Mountain chambers filled with marvelous stalactite and stalagmite formations. (Please note the mine tour is offered in Spanish only, but your guide can help translate). Continue on to nearby Cardona, one of Spain’s best-preserved medieval towns, where you will hear local legends and history on a guided tour through it's winding streets lined with Gothic and Romanesque buildings. Then, venture into the impressive Castle of Cordona, a nearly impregnable fortress that resisted invasion during the 1714 War of Spanish Succession and the Napoleonic Wars. After this glimpse into centuries of Spanish history, relax on the return ride to Barcelona.

We appreciated this tour a lot because we received a lot of knowledge from our guide Nuria. Seeing the castle was amazing and experiencing the Salt mine was incredible. We had a great day.
