Description

The Muntanya de Sal (Salt Mountain) is a unique natural phenomenon, a salt deposit on the surface. Salt is a sedimentary rock formed by evaporation and easily dissolved by water. As a result salt deposits reaching the surface are immediately dissolved by meteoric water, in humid climated even before it reaches the surface by the ground water. As a result there are actually only two places in Europe where you can find salt at the surface and one is here at Cardona,
