Pla de Santa Bàrbara

Architectural features
Remains of an Iberian settlement.

The town was placed around this little hill in the 12th century, when the king Alfons I (in 1163) ordered Pere Berenguer de Vilafranca to move the town here. The name of Montblanc has its origin in the lack of vegetation that this hill had. A castle, next to a small church, and a rudimentary city wall triangular in shape were built.
