Description

Settlement occupied between the 5th and 8th centuries where, inside a village of stone houses, there is a Paleochristian basilica with three naves separated by columns with an apse with two funerary side chapels, a baptistery with a small pool for baptism by immersion with a Visigoth-era canopy, and a necropolis in and around the church. Visigothic coins from Egica, Akhila and Witiza have been found in the excavations. It seems that the whole set caught fire in the early S. VIII and was abandoned.
