In Cerdanyola del Vallès (Vallès Occidental), this large settlement is located at the top of a hill in the Collserola range. From here its inhabitants dominated the whole Vallès plain where there were small, dependent agricultural settlements.
Inhabited between 550 BC and 50 BC, this enclave was an important centre for storing agricultural surplus, the basis of busy trade with other Mediterranean peoples (the Carthaginians, the Greeks, and later, the Romans). The collection of silos situated outside the settlement testifies to its occupation, as do the quantity and quality of localised imported materials.
The lion sculptures on show at the A. Ortadó-R. Maymó Museum indicate the presence of families of very high social standing.
