Iberian village of Sant Esteve d’Olius

Iberian village of Sant Esteve d’Olius

The museum in the region

The Iberian village of Sant Esteve d’Olius is located in the fields adjacent to the Romanesque church of the same name. This archaeological site is composed of a hundred silos and a very modest living area protected by a wall. Chronologically, it dates back to the 3rd century BC. It was possible a site for the storage of farming surpluses and evidences a complex economic structure that linked the Lacetani with the main coastal villages during the Iberian period.

The site was excavated and studied by the team of archaeologists of the Centre d’Estudis Lacetans (Lacetani Studies Centre, CEL). The various archaeological digs have been combined with the adaptation of the ruins to open them up and integrate them into the heritage site of Olius.

To reach it, drive towards Berga and around 4 km from Solsona, take the turn-off signposting Sant Esteve d’Olius.  After a few kilometres, you will reach the site formed by the Iberian village, the church of Sant Esteve and the modernista cemetery.
