The Cerro de San Vicente is a walled village with raw clay architecture dated to the first Iron Age (900-400 BC) and located in one of the sandstone crests of the capital of Salamanca. In 2006, an excavation was carried out in an open area, which discovered in the highest area of the crest 600 m2 of a well-preserved sector of the town with great archaeological potential, of which 400 m2 have been set up and can now be visited.
The archaeological work done in recent years within this enclosure has led to the discovery of materials and structures related to the eastern Mediterranean, which tell us about the complex nature of those communities and their social, economic and symbolic connections -among others- with the southwest of the peninsula and the Phoenician cultural sphere in the west.
