At Hostalets de Pierola there are the most important paleontological sites from the Miocene of Europe. They have provided us the most importants remains of Miocene primates in the last centuries such as Pierolapithecus catalaunicus, Anoiapithecus brevirostris, Driopithecus fontani and Pliopithecus canmatensis. Other important findings include the remains of the oldest relative of the Giant Panda found until now, as well as so many unique species of mammals in the world.
