Reports of pillaging at Acinipo archaeological site

Selling your home in Moraira

ONE of Andalucia’s most important archaeological sites, Acinipo in Ronda, has reportedly been the victim of pillaging.

Despite the importance of the site, it is very poorly conserved and lacks basic safety measures.

There are guards during the day, but at night, the National and Local Police are in charge of its safety, although the Junta de Andalucia Culture Council is responsible for the site.

It is unclear what the intruders may have taken, but sources close to the investigation claim there are several holes in the area.

The plunderers normally hope to find any metal objects, such as coins, jewellery and arrowheads, which can all be found with detectors and sold on the black market.
