Costa del Sol and Costa de Almeria Sights

Los Millares

  • Archaeological Site/Ruins

Updated 06/11/2014

Fodor's Review

This important archaeological site is 2.3 km (1½ miles) southwest from the village of Santa Fe de Mondújar and 19 km (12 miles) from Almería. This collection of ruins scattered on a windswept hilltop was the birthplace of civilization in Spain nearly 5,000 years ago. Large, dome-shaped tombs show that the community had an advanced society, and the existence of formidable defense walls indicates it had something to protect. A series of concentric fortifications shows

that the settlement increased in size, eventually holding some 2,000 people. The town was inhabited from 2700 to 1800 BC and came to dominate the entire region. Guided tours are available: call in advance to book. Allow two hours for your visit.
