Between the VII and VI centuries BC, in the plain of El Pesadero, a village surrounded by a stone and mud wall, settled there. It was composed by cabins with a circular floor built with adobe and branches and distributed disorderly around tight streets.

Two centuries later, in Astur times, the village grew taking up La Corona hill. Houses with rectangular floor were built and distributed along perpendicular streets and courtyards.

In the century I, a new place in the plain of El Pesadero was taken up. It was a pottery installation composed by six buildings around a central paved courtyard. In the workshop, materials for the building as bricks, tiles… were produced and stored.
