The fortified settlement of 'As Muradellas', like others in the II Iron Age, was built with a remarkable defensive system. The inhabitants of this settlement chose this place for its easy natural defense, provided by the meander caused by Tuela River and the rugged geography of the area.

It has some important defenses, a field of standing stones is primarily seen and later there are two parallel moats, alongside which rises the first line of walls. Passing through the wall, and getting into the first enclosure, the defensive scheme is repeated again, although this time the moats are before the standing stones. Finally, another wall protects an inner enclosure.
