The Acebedo archaeological site begins the second excavation phase this week

  • The works will allow continuing discovering the past of Mijas. At this point it dates back to 2.700 BC
  • This activity is part of the educational programme 'Conoce tu Municipio' (Get to know your municipality)

Students from IES Sierra de Mijas visited the area last Friday as part of the educational programme 'Conoce tu Municipio' (Get to know your municipality).

The Mijas Town Council's Department of Historical Heritage announced that the second stage of the archaeological excavation of the 'Cortijo de Acebedo' site will begin this week. It is a research project in which interesting aspects of Mijas' past are being discovered, "the necropolis we have found recently is an example. We believe that people from the Phoenician period are buried with their trousseaus and other items. Of course, this is something that attracts a lot of attention", explained Juan José de La Rubia, head of this Department.

Although centuries have passed,  great structure diversity has been preserved almost intact under the Acebedo estate, such as storage areas, spas and thermal baths, market-like spaces, and an oil press. Hence, the importance of its disclosure, said the Historical Heritage Councillor, Laura Moreno (PSOE). She insisted that "in addition to continuing this research project from the government team, we also want to address all Mijas schools and high schools so that they know the historical wealth that we have in our municipality. It is just a few kilometres from Mijas Pueblo or La Cala and a few metres away from Las Lagunas".

Last Friday, a group of students from IES Sierra Blanca showed great interest during the explanation given by the archaeologists involved in the excavation work. "At that time, they were not as evolved as we are now, but they knew how to make the most of the resources. It's amazing," said young Yassine Adong, while Carmen Alcaide, Latin and Greek teacher at IES Sierra de Mijas, said that "we have also previously studied many of these contents in class, such as burial systems, Roman houses or oven systems. Everything so that the students come with the necessary knowledge to understand and appreciate what they are going to encounter".
