Fortified settlement of some 30 Ha wide, located in that area known as the Miranda Plateau, a strategic spot for supplying water and for defence against any attack. It is surrounded by a wall and the defence was carried out using pit areas and special stone fields.

It is together with a necropolis area, La Osera, with steles and burial-mound structures, que estaba dividida en seis zonas bien delimitadas por hitos de piedras verticales, esto podría obedecer a la división de linajes o castas de la sociedad que componía el castro.
