Mountain salterns and their therapeutic benefits.
Relax and refuel your energy in the therapeutic waters of a completely restored historical setting and connect with the energy of the Pyrenees in a pool that will help you remineralize and detoxify your body.
Located in the municipality of Odèn, in the region of Solsonès, the “Salí” of Cambrils are the only mountain salterns of Catalonia and the few continental ones, since the vast majority of the salterns are in valleys or close to the sea in salt marshes.
During the tour you will get to know an old mountain saltern and the ingenious system of harnessing fresh and salt water.
The ingenious system built extracts the very high concentration of 300 g of salt per liter of water from the source, which is similar to that of the Dead Sea of Jordan, the most saline lake in the world, with about 350 g.
