Mountain of salt of Cardona. In 1st, 2nd and 3rd pictures, the main view of the salt mountain; in the 4th picture, the folding of the plastic behaviour materials in the mountain of salt of Cardona.
The evaporites of the Mountain of Salt of Cardona raised to the surface in one structure called diapir that keeps raising because their plastic behaviour combined with the differential pressure from the materials above them.
