Iberian settlement

The settlement of Ca n'Oliver is an aristocratic Iberian settlement that was inhabited between 525 and 50 BC, which is fundamental to understand the organization of the territory of Laietania during the Iberian era. The site has an area of 2 hectares and has been excavated almost without interruption since 1986. After a long campaign and the restoration and musealization of archaeological remains to make them understandable for visitors, in 1999 it was opened to the public and joined the Route of the Iberians, a project of cultural tourism promoted by the Archeology Museum of Catalonia.

After more than 20 years of archaeological research, of the musealization and adaptation of the remains and the reproduction of three Iberian buildings, at the moment you can visit more than 6.000 m2 of the deposit and understand its characteristics and evolution. The visit to the site allows you to see remains of construction of all the phases of the village, elements of the wall, the urban pattern and the large storage area. The walk through the village is an open door to the past, to the history of this settlement and to the daily life of its inhabitants.
