The archaeological excavation at “Torre de Mas d'en Torres d'Argençola” was carried out in different campaigns, until completely exhausting the anthropic stratigraphy. It was led by the archaeologists Adrià Cubo and Mireia del Pueblo. It consisted of a slightly rectangular building of “tower type”, with inner dimensions of 12m by almost 10m and divided into two large rectangular rooms.
The building would have been built in the 13th century, probably as a fortified structure, and above an earlier habitat. It was formed by the described plant but also by an upper floor, supported by a set of stone arches, which was accessed by stairs located at one of the angles. The building was abandoned in the second half of the following century. However, in subsequent years it was reoccupied, despite the partial collapse that the structure already suffered. Thus, the old spaces were divided in new compartments. Finally, in a moment between the 15th and 16th centuries, the building was definitely abandoned.
