The Cardona salt mountain and saline valley form one of the most interesting geological phenomena in Catalonia. The Master Plan called for an action to restore the landscape and the old mine workings with a series of proposals about boundaries, paths and uses that would facilitate a good social appropriation of the area as a whole as well as a comfortable visit to the old mine. The structural landscaping actions are: definition of a path-cornice from just below the castle to the foot of the salt mountain itself; restoration of the urban cornice above the saline valley, with the inclusion of amenities and car parking, and the fitting out of the zone between the old salt storage area and the salt mountain for concerts and other events.
