The primitive people

In the Palaeolithic period, the mountain area of Montblanc was already inhabited.

From the 4th to the 1st century BC on the Pla de Santa Bàrbara there was an Iberian settlement. Roman settlements dating from the 2nd century BC and the 2nd AD have also been found.

In the 10th and 11th centuries, during the period of the Christian conquest, there were once again settlements after centuries of abandonment.
