The Catalunia region
Located in a valley in central Catalonia, on the banks of the Cardoner river, Cardona is a picturesque town, heir to a remarkable medieval past. There, on top of a hill, we find a walled castle-fortress, a beautiful example of Catalan Romanesque.
The history of Cardona, located in the region of Bages, begins in the Middle Ages, around the 8th century when the castle-palace-monastery was built.
The streets of this town take us back to the period when Romanesque and Gothic churches were built. One of the most emblematic buildings in this town is a 9th-century fortified precinct, which was equipped to house the town's Parador de Turismo (Inn).
The most representative elements of Catalan Romanesque in the area are present in this medieval castle. The palace, located inside the walled enclosure, has a ducal courtyard, and a great hall with pointed arches. The tower of Minyona is one of the key features of the compound, as well as the chapel of San Ramón Nonato, which preserves Romanesque and Gothic elements. The true gem of the castle is the collegiate church of San Vicente, an impressive 11th-century Romanesque temple, with a central nave that is almost 20 metres high.
The village of Cardona also has interesting spots like the street of calle Major, Plaza del Mercat, and the church of Sant Miquel. We must not forget to visit the Mountain of Sal, in the outskirts of the city.
Countless excursions can be taken through the outskirts of Cardona. Peasant houses and ancient farms can be seen on the way to the Cadí-Moixeró Nature Reserve. Nearby, the fountains of the Llobregat river form an unforgettable scenery.
Near Cardona you can visit Barcelona, Andorra, Montserrat.
