Prehistory in Pla de l'Estany

Zip Code: 17852

The park is the best site in Western Europa to discover the passage from Neanderthal to modern man. 

The importance of the site was endorsed at the first archaeological digs in 1943 carried out by Josep Maria Corominas. At present they are continued by the University of Gerona and the Catalonia-Gerona Archaeology Museum. The Pla de l’Estany County Council started work on the present park in 1996.

 

A visit to the County Archaeology Museum of Banyoles is recommended to round off your trip where a good example of prehistoric objects from the Serinyà caves is on display.
