There are three archaeological sites at La Viñuela; one at the la Colina de los Asperones, another at los Castillejos and the third at el Taller de Herrera.

Despite the fact that La Viñuela is quite a new town in the Axarquia (dating back to the XVIIIth century), the land around it was some of the first to be inhabited by man.

Abundant traces from the Palaeolithic Period have been discovered in the Llanos de Herrera and on the banks and terraces that line the Río Guaro, where the Viñuela dam and reservoir now stands. Before the waters of the river flooded the area there were fourteen archaeological excavations going on which covered periods from the Neolithic Era through to Roman times.
