Museu d'Arqueologia de Catalunya-Ullastret

Museum
The Iberian settlement in Puig de Sant Andreu acts as the headquarters for the Museu d'Arqueologia de Catalunya in Ullastret. This enclave forms part of the Ruta dels Ibers.

Museum dedicated to the preservation and dissemination of Ullastret's archaeological heritage: the necropolis of Puig d'en Serra and the Iberian settlements of Puig de Sant Andreu and Illa d'en Reixac. Currently it is only possible to visit that of Puig de Sant Andreu, a site where remains have been found from the Chalcolithic age and which was continuously inhabited during the early Iron Age to the late 7th century BC. The Iberians populated it during the mid-7th century BC.

By using the archaeological remains found at the sites, the museum explains the Iberian culture in the north-western part of Catalonia. Likewise, the museum offers guided tours to the settlement in Puig de Sant Andreu and regularly organises temporary exhibitions, leisure and educational activities, workshops and even concerts.
