origins of the research

The hill called Puigcardener, where the See is located, is an important archaeological field, Manresa city’s birthplace. Its knowledge begins as the result of the excavations that took place in 1915. The accidental discovering of archaeological remains (pottery, tombs and several objects…) during the groundwork of the new and west located Neo-Gothic façade corroborated the spot archaeological interest and demonstrated an

interrupted occupancy since the 6th and 4th century b.C. Priest Josep Guitart, from the Centre Excursionista de la Comarca de Bages association, took on the responsibility of the excavation and was in charge of its direction, although the objects were not studied in detail or identificated correctly. Afterwards we have confirmed other accidental and unique discovering.
