You can find:
Engravings called “cazoletas” which are located in the southern part of el Arabilejo, a small mountain 900 metres high with a wide plain on its summit, which we must consider to be part of Iberian schematic art. The technique used for its elaboration is pecking, descaling and rock abrasion. There are more than fifty cup and ring hemispherical marks in el Arabilejo, which are connected by thin snake-shaped lines between the cup and ring marks.
This manifestation of rock art is directly related to the fortified village located in the summit of el Arabilejo. About twenty huts would make up a little population centre, dedicated to activities concerning farm economy around the mid-centuries of the II millennium B.C.
What’s so special about it?:
There are more than fifty cup and ring hemispherical marks connected by thin snake-shaped lines between the cup and ring marks.
The utility and meaning of these engravings remains a mystery.
