Apparently, the site where the city is located was occupied by a small population center in the Bronze Age, and in Pre-Roman times it was a town of the Astures, with adobe buildings, palisades, ovens... where potteries and coins of the Iberian culture were also found.

Throughout the I century AC, the town joined the Roman Empire and reached a period of growth as the public constructions, the sewer network and the urban that followed the reticular plant shows. At the end of IV century or at the first of V AC, the city seems to be definitely abandoned.

The public buildings found, as the Thermal Baths and the Market stands out.
