The nucleous of the population extends over 5,500 square metres, in which three different sectors have been excavated identifying the defence system, integrated with pits, walls and square towers, as well as various houses of masonsery and rammed earth, some of which are well preserved.
The visit will be on Saturday February 24 at 10.30am.
