History

The territory that now defines the city of Vandellòs and L'Hospitalet de l'Infant has been occupied for centuries by different civilizations. The proof is the existence of different archaeological sites found in the town such as cave paintings, made with the rock art painting technique called "Levantine" and dated between the seventh and the second millennium before Christ. These cave paintings were discovered in the Cova de l'Escoda, (Vandellòs) and 4 pictograms have documented schematic and naturalistic style stylized representations corresponding to two human figures, a doe and pigment remains difficult to interpret.
The geographical situation of the municipality, the Ebre, Camp de Tarragona and inland areas has allowed over the years that the inhabitants of these lands establish contact with other cultures creating routes for the exchange of goods and people.
