The archaeological site “El Cerro del Mojón” is located on the highest point of the hill of the same name where the limits of the municipal boundaries of Macael, Tahal and Chercos converge.

The settlement is limited to the summit of said hill, which is about 1,116 meters high and visually dominates large areas of the Sierra de Los Filabres and the Valle del Almanzora immediately.

The deposit has been interpreted as a fortress of the Copper Age, due to its similarity with those identified in the Los Millares deposit, and it is characterized by its location in a strategic point with ample domain of the landscape, its small dimensions and the presence of complex defense structures.
