La Loma del Alamillo

30870 Mazarrón

La Loma del Alamillo in el Puerto de Mazarrón In the i​m​mediate​ surroundings of Mazarrón Port, a series of sites known as ​El​ Conjunto Romano del Alamillo or El Alamillo​ Roman Complex​ are placed​. There are three different Roman sites, each​ one​ with a different character and chronology. One of the sites, dating from the  Republic (between the 2nd century ​BC a​nd the early 1st century AD) is La Loma del Alamillo, occupying the highest part of a small ​isolated mountain at​ about 150 metres from the beach and which cannot be visited​ at the moment​. The archaeological excavations undertaken there have documented a shrine with its via sacra for access and ​ on top of the mountain were found several rooms with painted plaster walls and the remains of an altar in the main room

The visitable parts of the Alamillo Complex (1st century to the late 2ns century AD) are the industrial area of a Roman villa and a Roman water distribution cistern in Cabo Finisterre street in the neighbouring housing estate of El Alamillo
