Eastern Mojave Vegetation Los Milares, (Almeria), Andalucia, Spain.

Query: No query available for country Spain

20 kms north west of Almeria between the villages of Gador and Santa Fe de Mondujar. This site has historic roots dating back to 1800 BC when it is thought to be the location of Spain's first metalworking culture. Pottery and jewellery were made here and crops grown in what must have then been a much more fertile landscape. However, it was their ability to smelt and shape copper that makes Los Millares a crucial stepping stone between the Stone and Bronze ages. The larger site situated above the beds of the River Andarax and the Rambla de Huechar is currently under excavation. There are fascinating tombs here which are domed chambers approached by a long low corridor. Unfortunately, most are fairly ruinous, however several have been skilfully reconstructed.
