Half Day Excursion - Iberian citadel in Calafell (Baix Penedès region)

5 September

Located on a hill near the coast, this is a fortified settlement that belonged to the Cessetan tribe, with an occupation stretching between the 6th and 1st centuries BCE. Archaeological works have uncovered defensive walls, places of worship and a variety of domestic spaces that range in size and complexity. A distinguishing trait of the site is that it is included in the European Exchange on Archaeological Research and Communication (EXARC) and has been reconstructed according to experimental archaeological techniques. During the tour, visitors discover the settlement’s architecture, its urban planning and streets, stepping inside houses to find out about the furnishings and utensils.
