This imposing fortress is enclosed by a wall of large ashlars and crowned by a building with towers. It boasts a superb view of the surrounding area.
The most noteworthy remaining features of this castle today are the cylindrical tower and the adjoining Romanesque church, with a peculiar pebble wall. It played an important role in the repopulation of Anoia and overlooked an area rich in natural resources.
The castle of the Tower of Claramunt is one of the few in the Anoia area that is still inhabited. Dating back to the 11th century, the building underwent various extensions in different periods. Its most noteworthy features are its Renaissance-style south and east façades, built at the end of the 16th century.
The Igualada Leather Museum and County Museum of Anoia is housed in two buildings of great symbolic value for Igualada’s industrial history, mainly based on the manufacture of wool and leather.
