Vestiges of an old prehistoric settlement with megalithic funerary temples, built and used over several centuries in the Chalcolithic period (3rd millennium BC), constitute a remarkable monumental ensemble. In the surrounding area were found natural cavities and crypts artificially excavated in the rock (hypogeus), which were used at the same time as collective tombs.
