Archaeological excavations carried out at the site of La Bastida (Totana, Murcia, in Spain) have exposed an imposing fortification system which is unique for its location and date. This discovery, together with all previous finds made in recent years, reaffirm that the site represents the most advanced ‘city’ settlement in western Europe in both political and military terms during the Bronze Age ca. 2,200 BCE. In terms of sophistication, it is comparable only to the Minoan civilisation of Crete.
The archaeological site is located in the Sierra Tercia, on a steep hill at the confluence of the Rambla de Lebor and Salado Cliff around 6 km west of Totana town in Murcia.
