Housed in the former new prison building of Montblanc, the Rock Art Interpretation Centre (CIAR) was established to be a reference point in the study and conservation of prehistoric art in the Prades mountains, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1998. It also aims to be a reference point for promoting education and fostering awareness among the population.
A visit to the CIAR begins with a short audiovisual projection, then continues with an itinerary through the rooms that immerses us in the world of rock art.
The exhibition space contains an educational display with panels, dioramas, copies and life-size replicas of the rock faces with paintings found in the extensive geographical area of the mountains of Prades.
The CIAR is part of the Rock Art Route of Catalonia, designed by the Archaeological Museum of Catalonia.
