The site reveals a use and activity that goes from the Iberian period to the Low Middle Ages. Its Roman high imperial period stands out, from which we have received numerous remains of materials such as ceramics, altars and votive offerings, among others.

The most relevant findings are the structures of what once was an isolated sanctuary, perfectly adapted to the topography of the plot, luxurious and of an unusual architecture, as it was dedicated during its long period of time to various cults.
