Santiponce Itálica


An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Estepa Tartésica Interpretation Centre


This centre focuses on the historical interpretation of the remains of the city found atop the Cerro de San Cristóbal from the 9th to 5th century BC. These remains of the first settlements in this municipality are kept in the museum for further study.

The archaeological remains of Cerro de San Cristóbal come from three periods. Pieces of glazed pottery bowls from the Late Bronze Age (9th-8th century BC) were found in a primitive hut. The remains of a Phoenician wall and pottery correspond to the Early Orientalising period (725-675 BC). Ceramics such as pithoi, urns, amphorae and remains of paving belong to the Full Orientalising period (675-550 BC). Ibero-Punic amphorae, polychrome ceramics and remains of paving have been preserved from the Proto-Iberian period (early 5th century BC) and grey pottery and remains of a wall from the Iberian period (5th century BC).
