An early mediaeval enclosure located atop the Puig Rom hill, formed by a thick wall with two square towers. It was built for defensive purposes during the 7th century. Judging by the objects found in the enclosure, it can be said that life in the fortress continued until the first quarter of the 8th century. It was declared a historic-artistic monument in 1963.
