The El Cogulló Iberian village's hilltop location gave its inhabitants, members of the Lacetani tribe, a commanding view of the Llobregat River as it flowed through Pla del Bages. The village shows signs of occupation between the Bronze Age and 1st century BC, in which time it became one of central Catalonia's most important Iberian settlements.

Spread across 5,000m 2 , the defence walls, more than 130 metres in length, are the village's most prominent feature, encircling what was likely a strategic or territorial control centre. El Cogulló forms part of the Archaeology Museum of Catalonia's Iberian Route.
