Cadí Tunnel (Catalan and Spanish: Túnel del Cadí) is a toll road tunnel in Catalonia, Spain, connecting the comarques of Cerdanya and Berguedà. The tunnel, with a length of 5 kilometers, is part of the C-16 highway and E-9, running under the Serra de Moixeró mountain range in the Pre-Pyrenees.[1][2] It is erroneously named for the Serra del Cadí mountain range, located nearby and, along with the Serra de Moixeró, part of the Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park.
