Arqueological site Santa Lucía

Alcalà de Xivert - Alcossebre

4000 years of history

The visit to the Saint Lucia site, declared Property of Cultural Interest, allows us to enjoy not only an archaeological site with signs of human occupation from the Bronze Age, but also exceptional surroundings and exceptional views. We can also visit the hermitage and its auxiliary buildings, which previously was a medieval fortress.
The excavations have revealed several phases of occupation.  The first two very far apart, between the 2nd millennium and the seventh century BC.  The place was abandoned after a fire in the Iron Age period, and this has allowed to find numerous pieces revealing the day to day of its inhabitants in an excellent state of conservation. In addition, there are vestiges of another settlement from the Islamic Period.
