A once globally significant potassium salt mine, the old town of Cardona shows traceable historical origin to the 11th century. A bastion to Catalan ideal and lair to the mighty salt lords, this enormous medieval hillside fortification tells many a chivalric battle narrative. Investigate where the medieval European hill fortress derived its crystallized wealth viewing Lombard romanesque jewelry along the way as you gaze at the contorted forms of salt stalagmite and stalactite glittering deep within the ancient hillside salt mine. Join us on an underground, overground march through a uniquely charming Mediterranean castle town with all the extras an authentic tour should bestow.
