40,000 euros for the master plan of the Roman site of Los Torrejones, in Yecla (13/12/2017)

The Governing Council has approved that the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Environment provides the City of Yecla with 40,000 euros to carry out the master plan of the Roman site of Los Torrejones.

This Roman site responds to the type called rustic town, which generally had a monumental area, where the owner lived, and a service area, for the workforce attached to the exploitation and infrastructure of it.

The excavations carried out in the site have allowed to document a long sequence of occupation, dated between the 1st century BC and the end of the 6th and the beginning of the 7th century AD, dates in which the site was fortified.

This circumstance, together with the uniqueness of some of the discoveries recorded in recent years, among which the excellent bust of Emperor Adriano stands out, make Los Torrejones one of the most important villas of this type in the southeast peninsular, so it is considered necessary to address a master plan that defines all the needs of the site from the point of view of archaeological research, the conservation of the site and its value and as a tourist resource.

The deposit has a large extension and has a complex stratigraphic sequence, the result of its long duration over time.

Likewise, several excavations have already been carried out during the last decade, which is why successive measures for the protection and conservation of archaeological remains have also been adopted.
