Milmanda Castle lies in the Valley of Poblet, in the county of Conca de Barberà, a geographical basin of the Francolí River. The county's name comes from the town of Barberà de la Conca.
This area used to be known as New Catalonia, land won back from the Arabs by the Counts of Barcelona. Old Catalonia was the Spanish March, an area the Arabs never reached.
Milmanda belonged to a network of castles established to provide security to the Christians who colonised the land taken over. All this ended when Ramón Berenguer IV, the Saint, conquered Tortosa (capital of the Muslim kingdom). With this victory, New Catalonia became safe again.
There is evidence at this Castle of a settlement dating back to Roman times, called Escupianda, whereas the name Milmanda appears later in a document dated 1148.
