Malaga’s Cortijo De Acebedo opens to visitors for the first time.
The Cortijo de Acebedo de Malaga in Mijas opened to visitors for the first time.
Three small groups of 15 people were able to visit the magnificent archaeological site on the occasion of the European Days of Archeology and take part in guided tours. The site includes a large Punic-Roman villa. It also includes materials that date back over 2,500 years.
The local government is committed to promoting this attraction to tourists, and it is unique in the region. The first visitors went to this archaeological site on Friday, June 18 for a free visit to discover the historical heritage of the region.
The mayor of Mijas, Josele González, and the councilor for historical heritage, Laura Moreno, were present at the event.
González commented: “I am convinced that in a few years this site will become a major archaeological museum of reference in Andalusia.
He also underlined the importance of historical excavations: “a tourist attraction for the municipality because we are talking about a unique area in the province not only for the structures and materials found but also for their conservation”.
Moreno commented on the commitment of the local government and said that: “Knowing and valuing the value of our history is a clear commitment of this local government which must continue in future mandates.
“We are talking about studies and excavations that lead to the discovery of valuable remains that are not found anywhere else in Spain and we must not only preserve them but also enhance them and make them known to the general public”.
