Traces of an ancient settlement can be seen on the surface of this hill. On both sides of the wall was built the same, without gaps and the filling between them is made of small stones and gravel. The entrance walls have a more regular workmanship, with the sides of the stones worked with ekan and placed partially as long as the line. The castle is believed to have been built between the 12th and 9th centuries BC.
