Parc Arqueològic.jpg

The site hides the Roman city of Iesso (currently Guissona). In the site we will go back more than two thousand years, when the Romans arrived and founded the ancient city. The wall, the entrance, the houses and the baths will help us to discover the Roman splendor of the city and will offer us the only possibility to walk through its streets. The visit is complemented by entering the Archaeological Museum of Guissona.

The Puig Castellar site is a Roman fortress (castellum) from the time of the conquest of Hispania; it was an important military establishment to control the Llobregós river valley, through which an old road passed, used by the Romans to move troops from the coast to the war fronts in the center of the Peninsula, for example Numancia.

The existence of a series of niches excavated in the sandstone rock is observed, where in Roman times the funeral urns containing the ashes of the deceased were placed. Its dimensions are 50 x 50 cm and 60 cm deep.
