 TEULADA-MORAIRA town hall put out to tender the contract to build a €181,350 path to the Cap D’Or archaeological site.
An adequate path is urgently needed, municipal sources explained, as the Generalitat-financed project not only includes excavations but the subsequent publication of three papers. These will detail the entire Cap D’Or archaeological site, restoring the Cap D’Or watchtower, Moorish water deposit and Iberian settlement as well as improvements to the path leading to the Cova de la Cendra cave and a study of the cave itself, which was inhabited 8,000 years ago.
The project’s €1.2 million cost received a €500,000 grant from the European Regional Development Fund (FEDER) granted in 2018. The town advertised the Cap D’Or path as urgent as the rest of the project cannot begin without it, explained Teulada-Moraira mayor Rosa Vila.
