Santa María de Castellar: History offers a dark and indecipherable past; There are no written elements, all are deductions and hypotheses. As if thousands of years before Jesus Christ-first of the Iron Age-there had been a tribal settlement in the places that would later occupy the church-possibly a fortified house-and the neighborhood scattered about. The Vall de Bianya was still stagnant, with islets that would appear among the water, filled with vegetation. Only on top of the mountain could a surviving colony of hunters, predecessors of those who, in times of transition, have given way to a more perfected culture that working the wastelands would begin to find taste in the sedentary life.
The burial traces and shredded incineration vessels are very eloquent. The same toponym Castellar, reserve inscrutable secrets, coinciding in other places of Catalonia where proceeds the discovery of prehistoric sites. Castellar de la Montaña, in this aspect could offer surprises to scholars.
