Built during the 6th century BC, the Castell Iberian village became a significant post on the trade routes which flourished around the Greek city of Empúries. Its location on a small peninsula afforded its inhabitants, the Indigetes, enhanced control over the territory. The village was adapted to the hilly orography, as evidenced by a number of different structures constructed to even out slopes.

This site forms part of the Archaeology Museum of Catalonia's Iberian Route.
