More than four thousand years ago in Daimiel, during the Bronze Age, a unique culture in the world called “Las Motillas” emerged. Called that way due to its fortified settlements, adorned by a tower and some wall enclosures surrounded by walls with a labyrinth aspect. From them the territory and the economic resources could be controlled, storing water, cereals and, in some cases, cattle.
