Castillo Doña Blanca
(102 words)

[German version]

Prehistoric Tartessian, fortified proto-urban settlement with a harbour at the ancient junction of the Río Guadalete and the Bahía de Cádiz, now a hill in the alluvial land east of the port of Puerto de S.

From the necropolis (de las Cumbres) are tomb inventories typically influenced by the Orient.
