An opportunity to visit ancient historical remains such as two necropolises and the old town of Súria.

1. From Cardona to Súria

First section of this salt route that starts at   Cardona and that in just over 4 hours will take you to Súria. You will begin the journey to the town with the most important medieval fortress in Catalonia, leaving the Monte de la Sal Park behind and seeing the spectacular silhouette of the Sierra de Castelltallat on the horizon. Then you will find the Viña del Guitarra necropolis, where 9 tombs excavated on a rock are preserved, and that of Can Cuernos, which is divided into two areas. They teach us what rural cemeteries were like in Catalonia between the 10th and 12th centuries. Later, the route passes through Palà de Torroella, a small town that had its origin in the Colonia Palà, an industrial complex that was built on the banks of the Cardener river at the end of the 19th century. This first section of the Camino de la Sal ends in Súria, where you can visit a medieval old town.

2. From Súria to Manresa

This second section of the Camino de Sal is a bit longer. It lasts about 6 hours (23 kilometers) and passes through two towns in Bages closely linked to the transport of salt and the Industrial Revolution. The first is Callús, which you will reach from the popular Manxons neighborhood. It was a regular stop for the salt muleteers, who slept at the Can Mestret Hostel, which no longer exists, and drank wines from the region. A vast area of crops will take you to the second town of interest that you will find in this section, Sant Joan de Vilatorrada, where three textile factories, Borràs, Burés and Gallifa, were built in the mid-19th century, which led to strong demographic growth. The path will end in the Parque de la Aguja de Manresa, an ideal place to enjoy a well-deserved picnic and the views offered by this leisure area of the capital of Bages.
