Archeological and monumental route

 
Footprints from the past on Manilva

This destination on the Andalucian coast, known for its splendid beaches, will surprise the traveller with an archaeological and monumental route of enormous cultural and historical interest.

There are five enclaves which compose this route pertaining to the same number of historical periods.

Cerro de los Castillejos

Mine of exceptional interest for its dimensions and its historical setting. It can be dated as 8th century B.C. with the arrival of the Phoenicians on the Andalucian coast. Practically the complete outline of the enclosure is preserved.

Roman archaeological site around the Castillo de la Duquesa

Found in the urban nucleus of the Castillo de la Duquesa, the estimated date puts it between half way through the first century A.D. and the first quarter of the fifth century A.D. The site is composed of a necropolis, villa, hot baths and salting factory.

Las Torres de Chullera

In Chullera there are two castellated towers one conical in shape and the other older with a cruciform base, the latter being the primitive tower from Nazarine times.

El Ingenio Chico

The Ingenio Chico is one of the sugar mills built by the Duke of Arcos. The aqueduct preserves the link with the rest of the construction in adobe,reminding us of medieval buildings.

El Castillo de la Duquesa

The Duchess's castle occupies the place where in other times there was a Roman villa, emerging in its shadow the quarter of the same name. Oredered to be constructed in 1767, it is found in an area with privileged views for coastal vigilence and defence.

Iglesia Parroquial de Santa Ana

St Ann's parochial church is situated in the church square. The edifice was constructed over a smaller one of the sixteenth century. The work was undertaken by the architect Felipe Perez in 1776 and was finished in 1783. The ground plan shows a distribution of two lateral naves and a central one with a cross.
