HISTORY AND CULTURE

Over the centuries, the Serra de Collserola attracted the attention of several very different cultures, all of which left their mark on the Park’s landscape, routes, buildings, etc. This constitutes valuable heritage, which should be conserved and managed for the enjoyment and education of present and future generations.

 

As can be seen from the many archaeological and architectural remains found here, the Collserola hills have been inhabited since prehistoric times. From the earliest Iberian settlers to modern Art Nouveau houses, more than two hundred built elements have been found in the Park, including roads, farm buildings and features of historic interest.

 

The outstanding features of this heritage include:

— many buildings of outstanding architectural quality

— a diversity of built elements

— constructions adapted to the local conditions and environment

The oldest remains found in the Serra are some flint tools dating back some 100,000 years, which were unearthed at Ca n’Albareda, in Sant Feliu de Llobregat and which speak to us of the existence of the first hunters in these hills.
