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.

Therefore, if you visit the Camp de les Loses, you can enjoy contemplating the site and the Iberian and Roman remains.

In the 9th century, the first parochial church of Tona was consecrated on the hill of the Castle, with the Castle and its watchtower that were the bases of the Tona sagrera.

When you climb the hill of the Castle, you pass in front of the church of Santa Maria del Barri, which is well worth a visit. This church of the twelfth century, consists of three naves supported by pillars and Gothic arches with sculpted vault keys. The bell tower is quadrangular and four stories high.

Once up the hill of the Castle you can enjoy spectacular views of the Plana de Vic and a look at the watchtower and the Castle will transport you to the life of the ancestors of these lands.

The present town of Tona was formed next to a real road, the S.XVIII, already had 30 hamlets and 70 houses on the street. It was at this time that the church of Sant Andreu was built.

The discovery of sulphurous waters in the subsoil caused the construction of 3 large spas and that in its surroundings 2 residential and summer districts grew. This fact made the population grow exponentially and shaped the municipality as we know it today.

Strolling through the Barrio Roqueta and Codina you can see the magnificent villas and modernist buildings.

The town of Tona has a privileged environment of hills, forests and large areas of grazing, spaces much appreciated by lovers of hiking.

The festivities celebrated in Tona are very diverse, on the one hand the more traditional ones such as the one that takes place during the second Easter, the Aplec de la Rosa de Lourdes and the Castle, with more than 75 years of history. The Joc Joc fair, which takes place for the Sant Andreu festival at the end of November and the most recent the Magic Festival, which takes place in May and which, with a few years, has already made a gap between the festivals of this artistic discipline.
