Cástulo archaeological site

This settlement 7km south of Linares bears witness to an ancient past. Founded by the Greeks and then inhabited by the Phoenicians and the Romans, this was one of the most prosperous towns in the area during Antiquity thanks to its lead and silver mines. It was here that Himilce, the wife of the Carthaginian General Hannibal, was born. Many of the items discovered at this ancient site are now displayed in the archaeological museum in Linares.
