Located an hour away from Barcelona, the town of Cardona offers many opportunities as a destination because of its great heritage interest, its thousand years of history, and nature’s provision of a unique mountain. In addition, it is the ideal size for people to enjoy peaceful surroundings and an opportunity to disconnect from the bustle of the city.
The programme of activities that Cardona offers is different to its that of its competitors, because it is a town that is highly committed to sustainability and health, since a scientific project, promoted by Cardona Town Council and led by Dr. Valentí Fuster, has been developed for some years now. This encourages healthy habits among its inhabitants and visitors and aims to become a reference in the field of health promotion. That is why most activities and events incorporate and promote this differentiation within their objectives.
The Healthy Communities scientific project of Dr. Valentí Fuster as the driver of the population’s lifestyle habits, making Cardona a reference in this field.
