The fortified settlement of Riomanzanas may have an approximate age of 2,500 years. It has a perimeter of 335 meters, and little more than 0.5 hectares.

It is installed on a fluvial breakwater formed by the streams Fontano, and Muria. It is surrounded by a wall and a moat, and reinforcing the wall, a field of standing stones appears. Within the site area have been recovered two fragments of hand pottery with mica degreasers and medium sized quartz.
