Montblanc

Guide to the Municipalities

Montblanc is one of the references of the collective imagination and of the Medieval heritage of Catalonia. Much of the urban centre can be considered an authentic monument.

This ingrained past has crystallised in the popular Medieval Week, the origins of which lie in the legend of saint Jordi and the dragon, situated by the costumbrist Joan Amades in the capital of Conca de Barberà. Completing this extraordinary variety of heritage are its archaeological sites, from palaeolithic cave paintings to remains of Iberian settlements.
