Huge Iberian walls and well conserved structures around 25 hundred years old...a cultural visit even young children will enjoy. The museum was fine; it could have shown more things, but was nice and neatly presented. All in a wonderful environment. If you have the chance...More

The Iberian settlement at Ullastret is well conserved and takes you back in time. The small museum has a good collection of artefacts from the time of settlement (7 to 4th Century BC) and there is also a 3-D audiovisual experience which we really enjoyed....More

We had already visited several Oppida (Iron Age Hill Forts) such as Ambrussum and Enserune in France, so it was nice to find such a well preserved site on the Costa Brava. There isn't much to see inside, just the usual cisterns and storage pits,...More

These are very impressive remains, in a bucolic situation. The city walls are amazing given that they date from 600 BC. The audioguide is entertaining, and the visit is not overlong. We liked the video, and seeing the skulls with nails through them was particularly...More

Good museum in a fantastic location. The Iberian remnants are the real reason for visiting. The huge defensive walls are particularly impressive, compared with some sites a lot remains and it's not difficult to envisage how the town functioned. We visited in late October and...More

Impressive ruins of an ancient Iberian civilisation. Well explained in English with a free audio guide. New for this year is a 3D short film recreating the city as it appeared just before it fell to the Romans.

The ruins here are impressive. You walk around and marvel at how these people lived over 6000 years ago. If your in the area, have a look
