A dolmen by the name of Archa
It seems the name of Camp de l’Arpa is a distortion of the place name Camp de l’Arca. In some documents dating back to the year 1037, there is mention of Ipsa Archa, a dolmen that stood in the area, and from which the name Camp de l’Arca derives.
Nowadays Camp de l’Arpa is part of the Sant Martí de Provençals district.
