The Iberian Route: History and literature in the land of the ausetani

Explore Roda de Ter, its archaeological and literary heritage, and the ancient Iberian settlements
This is a two-day trip with a night away to get to know the area around Roda de Ter with a literary route about the life of Miquel Martí i Pol, a journey in time to the Iberian fort of Montgròs and the Iberian settlement of Esquerda.

We suggest starting your two-day getaway in Roda de Ter with the Miquel Martí i Pol literary route. You can follow the route yourself with the app on your mobile phone or you can contact the Bac de Roda library to enquire about the schedules and availability of guided tours.

After lunch you could easily walk or take the car up to the Iberian settlement of Esquerda. Visit one of the temporary exhibitions held on the ground floor of the Museu Arqueològic de l’Esquerda and take a walk through this large Iberian and medieval settlement located on a bend in the river Ter as it passes Roda. At 5 p.m. from November to March and at 6 p.m. from April till October you can take a guided tour to discover all the secrets the settlement holds.

After spending a night in Santa Eugènia de Berga and having breakfast at the hotel, you can then visit the impressive Iberian fort of Montgròs, located in the Montseny Natural Park. The place to meet the guide is at the El Brull information point at 11 a.m. and then it is a ride in one of our cars to the settlement. When it comes to the local cuisine, you will find plenty of places to choose from to have lunch!

This route forms part of the "Get away from it all on the Iberian Route" initiative by the Museu d'Arqueologia de Catalunya and of the Catalan Government's Cultural Heritage Agency.

You can find all the information you need, and make reservations, online.
