The fortified settlement of Sant Miquel, constructed atop a hill overlooking the Ebro River, differs from others as its structures adapt to the orography of the land on which it lays. Like many other settlements established in the region, its location mirrors a need to control the waterways between the coast and the interior, along with facilitating contact with merchants from other Mediterranean peoples.

Thanks to its strategic position, the Sant Miquel Mountain was reused in 1938 during the Battle of the Ebro. Vestiges such as trenches and machine gun nests are still visible today.

Sant Miquel de Vinebre forms part of the Archaeology Museum of Catalonia's Iberian Route.
