We arrive at Cardona Castle, the most important medieval fortress of Catalonia, which it was built in 886 by Wifredo el velloso. Romanesque and Gothic in style.

The next stop will be in the salt mountain of Cardona, with an area of more than 100 hectares, this mine of potassium salt is one of the most important in the world. We will continue to contemplate the stalactites and stalagmites of ancient salt.
