COMPLEX ARCHAEOLOGICAL ALDAS


The most important construction of the one sieged it is constituída for a central body and two lateral, conformed by staggered platforms that they get up from below until the modified summit of the hill, guided of South to Northeast; as long as, a central perron solves the differences to almost arrive to the temple in the highest part and today destruído.

From that point he/she is projected toward the border of the beach, a cliff; but the vision panóramica of the sea, surprised in its immensity and natural force, close friend's rejoicing feeling and surprise that he/she allows to understand the narrow linking of the monument with the sea and the nature, takes place because the premeditation is to take to the man until the summit, to contemplate the show of the impetuous sea and its environment.

But, before beginning the ascent there are three public big squares, the nearest to the building has a well ovoid semihundido, with two front perrons to descend to the center.

The lateral bodies have the constructive same pattern, that of the North side also with a circular small well.
