Cerro Fuerte

Cerro Fuerte

Cerro Fuerte is an archaeological zone situated in an important rocky mass, which importantly includes a Roman settlement related to the mining exploitation of the area, and a megalithic necropolis belonging either to the Ancient Copper or Final Neolithic era. The Roman occupation is documented in the same Cerro de El Fuerte and in another small hill located to the northeast and separated from the previous one by a small valley. It preserves important remains of a wall from this time, whose layout can be largely followed. In the lower foothills of the southern slope is the prehistoric necropolis, of which twelve structures (tumuli) have been unearthed; all of them very damaged but preserving part of the tumulus and the chamber.
