Gallery of the Iberian Settlement

A visit to our history

Archaeological complex declared Asset of Cultural Interest by the Ministerial Order of 07/04/81 ( BOE 14/04/81). The village of San José is located at the top of the hill with its same name. Although it was built in the Bronze Age, its splendour period took place during the Iberian Age and at the end of the Roman Empire. The settlement includes a small walled area which is protected by square towers and some remains can still be found there.


The wall is a work of stonemasonry in which unequal stones were joined. It is small and only a minimum part has been dug out so far. However, the settlement is a great example of the Iberian town planning since it preserves a large part of its acropolis, its wall (more than 40 metres), two square towers, streets, stairways and remains which prove that this place was inhabited.
