Index card


The Iberian settlement of Puig de Sant Andreu d’Ullastret is the largest and one of the most important in Catalonia from the period in question and given its size is regarded as a true city and one of the main centres of the old Iberian tribe of the Indigets.

According to excavations and studies carried out there, its chronology dates from the late seventh century bc to the second century ad. Its urban organisation is typical of a fortified hill town. The settlement dominated a large agricultural, pastoral and mining territory.

On the hill there is also the remains of a castle from the Carolingian period and the sixteenth-century Hermitage of Sant Andreu, as well as the remains of a peasant’s house.
