This article aims to make the karst morphological forms to be found in conglomerate rocks, as well as the sedimentary sequence types recorded in such deposits, more widely known. Particular attention is paid to points where prehistoric occupation has been traced, sites such as: the Font Major Cave (Espluga de Francoli, Tarragona), the Hort de la Boquera, the Filador Rock-shelter and the Colls Rock-shelter (Margalef de Montsant, Tarragona), and the Parco Cave (Alôs de Balaguer, Lleida). By means of this approach the characteristics of karst deposits in conglomerate rocks are analyzed both from an archaeological and a sedimentary point of view.
