The archaeological site of Cerro del Villar is located at the mouth of the Guadalhorce river in Malaga, just south/southeast of the airport. It was discovered in the 60's and has only been the subject of archaeological excavations since 1987. But so far it has exposed a large-scale Phoenician city located on a remote island in the delta of the river.Cerro del Villar was founded in the eighth century BC, and possibly abandoned in 584AC
Archaeological excavations have revealed that it is a Phoenician settlement, with an urban complex, a structure formed by large houses with arcaded streets and potential market areas, a port, a possible wall and an industrial area. All urban features more typical of a city than a simple colony.
The public isn't allowed on the site, but the surrounding area is open to everyone. It's a magical area full of birds and plants. These sheep walked by. I'm not sure if they came from Then or Now.
