La Draga Neolithic site (Banyoles, Pla de L'Estany region)
Archaeological site featuring the remains of one of the oldest settlements of agricultural and livestock farmers in the Iberian Peninsula, located by the lake of Banyoles and dating back to 5,300-5,100 BCE. Thanks to its location in a lacustrine wetland area, structures and artefacts that would otherwise have decomposed have survived down to the present day: wooden parts of the large huts on raised stands (beams, planks, interwoven branches), wooden bows and arrows, digging sticks, combs, needles, tool handles. The site has also provided a great deal of information about the management of natural resources, eating habits, and crafts (such as the production of textiles and basketwork). This is an exceptional site undergoing continuous research. Visitors can view the reconstructions of huts and barns and join the demonstrations, guided tours and workshops dealing with the Neolithic.
