Olèrdola Castle Historical Heritage Site

The Olèrdola Castle Monument complex, traces of history in Penedès.

This archaeological site, strategically located between the Penedès plain and the Garraf, is the most representative example of the historical development of the region. Since prehistoric times its inhabitants have left their mark along the rocky platform; remains of the Bronze and Iron Ages, an Iberian settlement, a cistern and an impressive military Roman fortification, a medieval city with pre-Romanesque and Romanesque churches, a castle and anthropomorphic medieval tombs carved into the rock make up part of this extraordinary archaeological and historical record.

The Olèrdola Castle Monument complex, open to the public since 1971, is today one of the headquarters of the Museum of Archaeology of Catalonia (MAC). It was also declared a Cultural Asset of National Interest in 1931 and an Asset of Cultural Interest, thanks to its archaeological, historical and monumental importance.

Come and discover how the site has been the object of successive human occupations since ancient times and enjoy this magnificent historical complex in the Olèrdola Natural Park in the heart of Penedès.
