Tona is a town with a long history of confluence of peoples and cultures.
It is known that its origins go back to the Neolithic. The Iberians established in the flat of the Castle of Tona and in the Camp de les Loses and later it was a Roman enclave, since by its lands it passed the Roman road that climbed towards Collsuspina and Caldes de Montbui.
