Cardona and its medieval castle sits halfway between Barcelona and Andorra in the Catalonia region of Spain. It is about 90km north-west of Barcelona. Located in a valley in central Catalonia, on the banks of the Cardoner river, Cardona is a picturesque site with an important mediaeval heritage. Its most outstanding features include the walled fortress in its castle, set on a hill, and the foremost example of the Catalan Romanesque style of architecture. The town started to develop from the 11th century when there was a market at the foot of the castle.
