Cortes de Arenoso


Los Morrones, a fortified village from the Iron Age in Alt Millars

In the area of Cortes de Arenoso, a town from Alt Millars located 75 kilometres of Castellón, around the farmhouse of Los Morrones, there’s a large archaeological zone that shows the continuity of the occupation in a period spanning two Millennia. Archaeologists have documented three areas: Morrón Royo, Los Morrones and the farmhouse of Los Morrones. It is considered one of the highest constructions of this mountainous region and it shows the importance of the zone in the past. The digging processes have been mainly focused on the village of Los Morrones which structural organization is unmatched until now. From elaborate studies we can assert that its construction starts in the seventh century BCE.
