The history of Avinyonet de Puigventós and its surroundings

Although Neolithic industries have been found, the first signs of settlement in Avinyonet date back to Roman times, as evidenced by the Roman villa of La Font del Vilar. However, the first reference to the town does not arrive until the year 962 and under another name, that of Sant Esteve de Manibulo or Sant Esteve de Manol. The second reference to the town, already as Avinyó, is the name of a character: Berenguer d'Avinyó, already in the 11th century. Probably the most outstanding fact in the history of this town in Alt Empordà is the castle of Avinyonet, which gave rise to the town and was attacked in 1128 by Count Ponç II d'Empúries. The name of the town, however, was Avinyó until the 13th century. The diminutive has been used since the 14th century. In 1916, the toponym of Puigventós was added to distinguish it from Avinyonet del Penedès.
