El jaciment del Barranc de la Boella
This site is an archaeological complex of great interest, because it allows us to know what the first human populations that lived in Camp de Tarragona
were like and the natural environment in which they lived. It was discovered at the beginning of the 20th century. However, it was from the year 1970 that the archaeologist Salvador Vilaseca began the first work. As a curiosity, in 2006 there was a strong torrent that exposed some remains of mammoth teeth.
