This monument, discovered in the late 1960s by D. Luis Benito del Rey, has been declared a Site of Cultural Interest (B.I.C.).

In Vilvestre it has always been known as a Neolithic workshop, since it was the first hypothesis that emerged, but later studies maintain that it is a prehistoric sanctuary.

In this place, excavated on the bedrock, you can see numerous vertical incisions and cups in the upper part. The lower part is made up of a continuous bench with cavities and a mesiform projection.

It is located at the top of the town in the area known as El Muro and is considered one of the most important prehistoric monuments in Europe.
