In the southern half of the Iberian Peninsula, sharing a lapse of time with the megalithic art, we find necropoli in artificial caves. They are constructions dug into the rocky substratum of the land that normally have similar plans to those of the megalithic sepulchres, with one corridor and a chamber, as well as doors that delimit the inner areas.

Morphologically, the megalithic constructions recall a mother's womb, to which the
deceased return after being laid to rest in them. A magnificent example of this is the Necropolis of las Aguilillas, located in the valleys of the rivers Guadaltelba and Turón, in a sandstone promontory from the Miocene that rises over the landscape to 500 metres above the sea level.

There is a circular path to visit the seven tombs of the Necropolis; the route is around two kilometres long and of medium-low difficulty.
