Archaeological site of Las Saladillas

Las Saladillas is one of the most interesting Bronze Age archaeological sites in Castilla-La Mancha. Its discovery was fortuitous, during the construction of a golf course. After the discovery, a team of archaeologists from the University of Castilla-La Mancha carried out the first interventions between 1993 and 1994, documenting 25 pits that shed light on this type of Bronze Age settlements in La Mancha, until then little known.

Almost 30 years later, between 2021 and 2022, research work has been resumed at the site, locating 25 new pits, of which 14 have been excavated. After excavation, the pits have been backfilled and marked with white gravel for better preservation and identification. Much of the material found inside the pits can be seen today in the Municipal Museum of Alcázar de San Juan.
