Characteristic vetton iron-age settlement
La Mesa de Miranda
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.
