Characteristics:
Remains of an Iberian settlement.

History:
Although there are these remains, the town was placed around this little hill in the 12th century, when the king Alfons I (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. Almost immediately a castle, next to a small church and a rudimentary city wall triangular in shape were built.
