The Mithraeum in the Roman villa of Els Munts is mainly noteworthy for its location and its size, almost as big as the Mithraeum in the Baths of Caracalla in Rome, one of the largest known in the whole empire. It was common to find shrines to Mithras in towns and military camps, but not in villas.

El sector en el que se localiza el mitreo ya fue indagado mediante sondeos en la década de los 70 y en 1996.
