The Montclús archaeological site is 7 km from the village of Les Avellanes i Santa Linya along a forest track.
Montclús is the ruins of an abandoned village, including a castle, several streets and a small Roman hermitage, Santa Urbà (now restored).
In the area surrounding the village there are needle-shaped limestone formations, winding paths and deep ravines. A real geological marvel with views over the Camarasa reservoir, the Baronia de Sant Oisme and Congost de Tarradets.
We recommend a guided tour to explain the story of every last corner.
Legend has it that the people of Montclús were very sinful. In March 1373 the village was destroyed by an earthquake measuring 7 on the Richter scale. There are those who still believe that the earthquake was divine punishment because the only survivors were the hermitage of Sant Urbà, and the old woman who was praying inside.
