The first time el Cerro de la Muela was occupied was back in the Chalcolithic and early Bronze Age (2500 - 1600 B.C.). A settlement formed by different cultures from prehistory to the roman era.

There are no news of further occupations until a millennium later (7th and 6th centuries B.C.), when a fortified settlement was created corresponding to the "Castreña culture" (Castreña: a local people) of the First Iron Age, which would continue into the 4th century B.C., immediately prior to the age of Celtiberian culture.

In 153 B.C., the Roman consul Quinto Fulvio launched the first attack on the Celtiberian town. It was the first defeat suffered by the Roman army, and would open twenty years of fruitless attacks on the pre-Roman arévaco people's settlement. In 133 B.C., the winner at Carthage, Cornelio Escipión, built a wall surrounding the Celtiberian settlement, leaving the (Numantine) enemy without provisions or resources to be able to survive.
