IBERIAN CITY OF CASTELLET DE BANYOLES (TIVISSA)

Regarded as one of Catalonia's most important Iberian sites, this city belonged to the Ilercavones tribe. The site's hilltop position gave it a commanding view over a sizeable stretch of the Ebro River. Prominent features include its Hellenistic defence system, distinguished by two pentagonal towers astride the entrance gates. The Tivissa Treasure is a pertinent reflection of the site's relevance, a finding which includes 4 pateras, 11 cups and 1 bracelet, all crafted from silver. The originals are on display in the MAC-Barcelona's permanent exhibit.

This site forms part of the Archaeology Museum of Catalonia's Iberian Route.
