River Andarax valley

The municipality of the Almerian town of Benahadux is crossed by the Andarax river and is home to many archaeological remains from the Copper Age. Its primary economic activity is the production and trade of straw, oranges and potatoes. Many historical remains of objects and weapons can be found in Benahadux at the Archaeological Site of Cerro de El Paredón.

This archaological site is located 20 kms north west of Almeria, between the villages of Gador and Santa Fe de Mondujar. The site dates back to 1800 BC, when it was probably the location of Spain's first metalworking culture. Pottery and jewellery were made here and crops grown in what must have then been a much more fertile landscape.
