Route of the Iberians in Catalonia

This route is a cultural proposal organised by the Archaeological Museum of Catalonia. It is structured into seven short routes that cover the sites of each one of the Iberian tribes that lived in Catalonia. They can be visited at your leisure or with a guide. Furthermore, some of the sites organise activities and workshops that teach visitors about the different aspects of the Iberian culture, in an entertaining way. In order to get all the information you need, the best thing is to go to the Archaeological Museum of Catalonia or visit the tourist office at each place.

Archaeological sites
In the province of Girona, we can visit three ancient villages that are very close to each other, belonging to the Indigetes tribe, situated in the area of the Les Gavarres massif and the Costa Brava. We are talking about Castell de Palamós, Puig de Castellet (Lloret de Mar) and, especially, the Iberian village of Ullastret, the most extensive Iberian settlement found in Catalonia.
In the province of Barcelona we'll find site belonging to the tribe of the ancient Ausetani. It is situated between La Plana de Vic and the Montseny massif, called El Casol de Puigeastellet (Folgueroles), L'Esquerda (Les Masies de Roda) and El Turó de Montgròs (El Brull).
Also near the city of Barcelona we'll find settlements of the Lacetani tribe: less than 20 kilometres from the city we find Santa Coloma de Gramenet and Cerdanyola del Vallès, where there are two sites: Puig Castellar and Turó de Ca n'Oliver, respectively. If we travel around 60 kilometres we'll get to Sallent, where we'll be able to see the remains of the village of El Cogulló.
If we want to see a Cessetani tribe settlement we can visit the interesting spot of Olèrdola, also near Barcelona, and in the province of Tarragona we'll find Ciutadella specifically in Calafell. Still in Tarragona, in the Ebro River region, there are sites that belonged to the Ilercavones: El Castellet de Banyoles (Tivissa), El Coll del Moro (Gandesa), La Moleta del Remei (Alcanar) and Sant Miquel (Vinebre).
Lastly, we'll travel to the south of the province of Lleida to discover how and where the Ilergetes tribe lived, thanks to the remains found in the towns of La Fortalesa, in Arbeca, and El Molí d'Espígol, in Tornabous.
