From Sallent, the major city of Barcelona is approximately 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the southeast.
Catalonia is dotted with fabulous attractions, from tourist hotspots to still-undiscovered gems. If you've got a hankering for more things to see and do, head to the Cardona Castle and Castle of Cardona in and around Cardona, which is 13 miles (21 kilometers) to the southeast of Sallent.
About 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southeast of Sallent is Sabadell, an important regional center and the home of Duran House, Lluch Office and Principal Theater. If you still have time left, be sure to check out The Water Tower and San Felix Church and Belltower before you head back to Sallent.
Catalonia is home to some significant monasteries and other sites of spiritual importance, ideal places to get a taste of the region's spiritual side. Catalonia is a wonderful vacation destination for those who get excited about open-air museums, gardens and open-air exhibits.
Pack your own equipment or rent some when you get here, and make the most of the region's water sports. Boating is one great activity. Another is sailing. If you are after a unique activity to enjoy in this region, try hot air ballooning.
And at the end of your vacation, gather your luggage and bid Sallent "Adiós" (farewell).
