Solsona is a municipality and capital of the "comarca" of the Solsonès in
Catalonia, Spain. It is situated in the centre of the "comarca" in the Central Catalan Depression. It is served by the C-1410 road to Manresa, and is linked to Berga and Bassella by the C-149 and the L-301 roads respectively.

The old town is known as the "Clos antic" or the "Vila vella": it preserves a large part of its
fortifications. The cathedral of Santa Maria de Solsona and the episcopal palace are in a neoclassical style. The latter houses the diocean and comarcal museum and the Museum of Salt ("Museu de la Sal"), with crystals and objects made from the salt of Cardona.
