Stelae room

The proximity of the stelae allows us to understand all of the details of their decoration

The stelae room is accessed from a quadrangular spiral labyrinth with an almost imperceptible slope. Visitors are surrounded by pieces of cast ceramic leading through the filtered light, the air, the smells of the countryside, the fog, etc. The light intensity drops, the ceramic flooring breaks up and when we reach the room, the light from above focuses our sights on the engraved surface of each of the stelae. Our senses are cancelled out on our journey there.

Once in the room, a horizontal plane of clay dust shows the footprint of every visitor who passes.

Amongst the sculptural remains of the room, we find fragments which might have been part of a statue-menhir sculpted with depictions of figured characters. At an overall approximate height of 7 metres, it used to be part of the tallest statue-menhir in Europe.

Calmly retracing our steps, the exit is at the end of the same labyrinth, where there is no chance of coming across other visitors.  Little by little, the light and sound intensify until, at the exit, the view of a cornfield brings us back to the characteristic agricultural scenery of the Noguera region.
