A world of salt
Cardona has a spectacular castle, a town centre well worth visiting... but this is for another day! Today you’ll focus on the mountain that for almost the whole of the 20th century was the main source of work in Cardona, the Salt Mountain, very visible because of its whitish colour. Today it is called the Salt Mountain Cultural Park, and there are guided tours that explain the exceptional geological character of the site and the importance of salt for humanity over the centuries. Wearing a miner’s helmet, you’ll explore half a kilometre of galleries and go down 86 metres among stalactites and stalagmites with impossible shapes.
