Its strategic location favoured the interchange of raw lse and manufactured goods by prestigious projects, such as Greek ceramics.
The site has been consolidated and even one of its houses has been entirely rebuilt. The settlement covered four hectares and was surrounded by a walled enclosure that followed the contours of the hilltop. These elements are reproduced with different texture and reliefs which are accordingly depicted in a legend which permits blind persons to previously identify them for their subsequent discrimination.
Other agricultural tools found at the site include billhooks, sickles, hoes and rakes, forming one of the most complete tool assemblages known for pre-Roman agriculture in Spain.
In the preliminary studies conducted to carry out this project such as the analysis and overall action, we highlight the following issues: The scale-model comprises its relief in a ground plan in order to observe the interior layout of alusses tower with the lateral surveillance benches of the entry and its volumetry in the original form.
