Outras atividades


    Explore Barcelona’s most iconic landmarks and then discover the medieval charms of Cardona, a town founded in the 10th century.

    Nota: This tour is not recommended for guests with walking difficulties or for those who use a wheelchair, walker or scooter due to the amount of walking, many steps and cobbled surfaces.

    Dia 1

    Upon arriving at the Barcelona International Airport, you will meet your driver outside the luggage pick-up area. You will then be transferred to the NH Gran Calderon Hotel Barcelona or a similar hotel, where you will spend the evening. Meals are on your own today.

    Nota: Single guests will transfer in a sedan and couples in a van. Sedans hold 2 pieces of luggage plus 2 carryon size bags. Vans hold 4 pieces of luggage plus 2 -3 carry on sized bags. Should you have more luggage than is permissible, a larger vehicle may be required with additional cost. Please advise your booking agent at least 21 days before sailing if a larger vehicle is required.

    Dia 2

    Following breakfast at the hotel, meet your guide and enjoy a morning tour of Barcelona. Begin with a panoramic drive to see the magnificent masterpiece of Gaudi, the Sagrada Familia (outside visit only). Continue with a walking tour through the gothic quarter passing by the Gothic Cathedral. You will have some free time for lunch on own or further exploration before meeting again with your guide for the transfer to Cardona.

    Later in the day, your guide will accompany you on the 1.5-hour drive to Parador de Cardona, a charming hilltop hotel in Cardona that was once a medieval castle. It’s an exquisite setting with unrivalled views over the city and the Cardener River. The atmosphere inside the hotel is just as memorable, as the architectural features and furnishings are medieval in style.

    Important Note about the hotel: being a medieval castle, guests should not expect this property to have the same feel as a luxury city hotel. There is no luggage porterage available at the hotel, so guests will be responsible for taking their own belongings to their room.

    All 54 rooms at the Parador de Cardona are spacious, well equipped and furnished in Gothic style. They are decorated with fine, rich fabrics in light pastel tones and bright colors. The rooms enjoy lovely views over the countryside, Cardoner river or the medieval-style town of Cardona. Guests will find rooms encased by ancient walls and arches, but offering modern comforts such as marble bathrooms, satellite TV, minibar and free Wi-Fi. From the atmospheric cellar vaults right up to the furnished roof terrace, the hotel exudes a charming atmosphere – one where guests may feel like they have travelled back in time to the Middle ages. On this 9th-century fortified site, guests can also visit Minyona Tower and a lovely church, both dating from the 11th century.

    A group dinner is included at the hotel this evening.

    Also Note: There are approximately 100 steps to reach the town center from the hotel. A shuttle service between the town and the castle will be offered on day 3. The local representative that accompanies you on the transfer from Barcelona does not remain at the hotel.

    Dia 3

    After breakfast, you will meet your English-speaking guide in the lobby of your hotel and start your walking tour to the castle. A number of wealthy salt barons lived here between the 11th and 15th centuries. Amazingly, the fortress was never conquered and survived intact through the Spanish Succession of 1711, the Spanish Civil War and other conflicts.

    Because of its age and excellent condition, the castle reflects the evolution of military arts from the Middle Ages to modern times. It is now a state national monument, as is the adjoining Collegiate Church of Sant Vicenç.

    Next you will transfer by shuttle with your guide to Cardona’s Old Town. Here you will walk through the narrow medieval streets in Cardona. The Old Town is typically quiet and immensely charming, and if time permits you will visit the massive Church of St. Miquel. The Catalan Gothic-style building dominates the main square.

    Leaving Cardona behind, you will continue towards the salt mines for a visit. The Vall Salina of Cardona is a depression of the land in the form of an elongated ellipse, having a surface area of 100 ha. The outcrops of salt are located within the depression and were thus formerly known as the Salí (salt warehouse), and are today known as the Vall Salina (salt valley).

    Enjoy a walk through the old mining facility, Mina Nieves. See the imposing tower of the old mine shaft ‘Maria Teresa’ and the museum, which explains the history of the industrial exploitation of the valley. The shaft’s mining machinery can also be seen just as it was when fully operational.

    NOTA: The visit of the mine is not exclusive – there will be other people visiting as well. Personal audio guides are used inside the mine.

    Finally you will return to the Old Historic Quarter where you can enjoy some free time in the centre or take the shuttle to return to the Parador. Lunch is on your own.

    Later in the day a group dinner will be arranged at the hotel.

    Nota: If you visit Old Town on a Sunday, expect crowds from the local market. Respectful attire is required to enter all churches. If you arrive at a church during mass, you may only visit the outside, where the guide will elaborate on the history and construction of the church.

    Reminder: This tour not recommended for guests with walking difficulties or those who utilize a walker, wheelchair or scooter due to the amount of walking, many steps and cobbled surfaces. There are over 100 steps from the castle between the Old Town and the hotel.

    After breakfast at the hotel, you will meet your driver in the lobby for the transfer back to the pier in Barcelona, where you will embark the ship. This transfer is not guided or escorted.
