Castellón Alto Archaeological Site

Castellón Alto Archaeological Site

This site is located within the town limits of Galera in Granada, just one kilometre from the town centre along the left hand bank of the Galera River.

The settlement at Castellón Alto goes back to the El Argar culture that existed during the advanced period of the Bronze Age (1900-1600 B.C.). It was small in terms of the Argar culture; a maximum of between eighty and one hundred people could have lived here. It is now partially reconstructed and a visit to this site gives a good idea of what daily live in an Argaric settlement would have been like more than 3,500 years ago.

The Castellón Alto site also belongs of the Andalusian Network of Cultural Spaces (RECA).
