The Salt Mountain

The Salt Mountain is a unique natural phenomenon in the world and is still growing as the rain erodes it.


Its height of 120 metres is just the tip of an enormous diapir with a depth of nearly two kilometres. For one hour, you will descend to a depth of 86 metres and enjoy the spectacle of the shapes and textures of the salt massif.

The site that you are now visiting was, for years, one of the world’s major potassium chloride mines. Mina Nieves de Cardona (1929-1990).  The former mining complex is now the Salt Mountain Cultural Park, a large cultural facility intended to inform the public about the importance of salt, the site’s exceptional geology and the use that people have made of this natural resource for centuries.

The Salt Mountain Cultural Park currently offers visitors 2 different guided visit options.
