The Pla de Santa Bàrbara is a hill in the heart of the town of Montblanc, in fact a small plateau that rises twenty meters from the surrounding land. This enclave was occupied by an Iberian settlement of the Cossetan tribe. The various archaeological excavations carried out in the twentieth century of the Iberian village documented a radius-shaped structure, with small rectangular houses attached to it and silos that served to store grain. The houses had a stone base and elevation of adobe and plant elements. The dwellings were small, rectangular and with a fireplace. Along the wall, a brick bench served as a seat.
