Up the road from the coast to Algarrobo, before reaching the roundabout between the Mediterran and the highway, to the right there is a path towards Trayamar. You pass the house of Bernabé Fernández -Canivell, pharmacist and inventor of Ceregumil and then continue to the necropolis. Once inside, you can see large graves but only one is in good condition. It consists of a small access corridor and a burial chamber made of blocks of stone. This is possibly the most important vestige of the Phoenicians in the western Mediterranean. It is associated with the town of Morro de Mezquitilla, dated in S. VII BC. The Archaeological Museum of Malaga has a reconstruction of the same grave and the remains found during excavation, including jewelry, utensils, etc.
