    Castell i Canonica de Sant Vicenc de...

    by DSwede Updated Jul 20, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The main landmark of the city is the castle and fortress on top of the hill. Today, many of the rooms are available as a nice hotel, but the average tourist can walk around the area at any time.

    The Castle and grounds around the area are open to the public free of charge.

    There is a museum that costs ~2.50 Eur. Opening hours are:
    January ~ May : 10am ~ 1pm / 3pm ~ 5pm
    June ~ September: 10am ~ 1pm / 4pm ~ 6pm
    Closed on Mondays.

    Sunday Market

    by DSwede Updated Jul 20, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sunday morning (finishes ~1pm) is the weekly market for Cardona. Traditionally it might have centered more around foods, it now includes all fresh produce of the area, even sausages and meats, as well as toys for the kids, clothes and household items.

    You can find just about anything you want for sale at reasonable prices. I typically pick up some fruit at one stand and wonder aimlessly while eating my apple or juicy peaches.

    The restaurant in the Parador: I never eat in a hotel restaurant...

    by seatpants Updated Apr 23, 2008

    The restaurant is mid evil in style and specializes in Catalan food.
    The surroundings were great and the architecture was amazing but the ambiance was very typical of a "reserved" hotel restaurant. A little too serious for more than one trip. I was almost 30 and felt a little too young for this place.

    Favorite Dish: My favorite dish was the butifarra amb mongetes / catalan sausage with white beans. This sounds very simple but that is the beauty of the dish.

    parador de cardona cafe: watch an old lady beat a sheep while you...

    by seatpants Written Feb 9, 2005

    On the other hand, the cafe upstairs has amazing views and some great simple tapas. The Jamon and the olives were delicious and you grab a beer and stare out the windows overlooking the town. The hours of operation were a little hard to figure out.

    Favorite Dish: olives / olives
    cafe solo / espresso
    jamon serrano / ham
    pa amb tomaquet / bread w/ garlic and tomatoes
