NEAN – Prehistoric Park of Capellades
The NEAN – Prehistoric Park of Capellades is a facility located on the Capelló Cliff site. It’s an area of great geological and scenic importance, and of significant archaeological interest thanks to the presence of some 20 archaeological sites dating from different periods.
The Prehistoric Park of Capellades was created with the goal of protecting this natural and archaeological heritage, positioning the town as an important centre for Palaeolithic archaeological research and for the dissemination of knowledge on the country’s prehistory, and establishing it as a cultural-tourist destination.
The park encompasses the entire area of the travertine formation of Capelló Cliff, with a total surface of almost 50,000 m2, stretching approximately 1,100 metres in length. It also includes the entire façade of the town over the Anoia River, which flows at the foot of the formation.
