The village of Villa del Rey, which was formerly known as “Aldea el Rey”, is surrounded by landscapes of great beauty with its plains, dehesas, and rocky places in which to lose yourself. Although in historical terms it is of relatively recent origin, in its municipal district unexcavated remains of much older cultures can be found. The earliest are the remains of tombs of the megalithic period (3,500-3,000 B.C.) which some archaeologists refer to as the “culture of the tombs”. As the materials with which they were constructed are those predominating in the vicinity, we find dolmens of granite and of slate, of which the former are in a better state of repair. Moreover, the appearance of individual items such as tegulae, loom weights, and other pottery remains of the Roman period also reveals the possible existence of rural settlements at that time.
