Cardona is a city located 90 kilometers from Barcelona, which gained fame and influence in the Middle Ages due to the richest salt deposit – the famous Salt Mountain of Cardona.
In addition to the Salt Mountain, Cardona is also famous for the eponymous fortress Castell de Cardona, founded in the IX century and towering above the city on a high hill. Currently in a once formidable fortress is a 4-star haunted parador hotel. The historic city center is included in the list of cultural heritage of Spain. Of particular note are the old Romanesque cathedral church of Colegiata de San Vicente, the church of Parroquia de San Miguel, as well as the market square.
