Mijas - A pool from the second century BC is found at Cortijo Acebedo
The earth is speaking to us at Cortijo Acebedo, grid by grid, and this time we have discoverd a new chapter of our past history. If they have already discovered, thanks to the patient work of these archaeologists, furnaces, Roman baths or a peculiar oil press, now, a pool has appeared in the land, which goes back to the second century BC. “We know that it is from the Punic period, although the Romans had already conquered this territory, they continued to live with this culture, and the purpose is not yet known with certainty but we believe it was to house wine because nearby we have located some plantation traces that, because of the layout, we believe are from vineyards of the same era”, said the head of the Department for Historical Heritage of Mijas, Juan José de la Rubia.
