In this place a skeleton of an Indian 4000 years old was discovered, which is on exhibition in the Fortín Conde de Mirasol. Before this discovery the archaeologists thought that humans had arrived at the Caribbean 2000 years ago, but this discovery is evidence that their arrival was 4000 years ago. This tomb is surrounded by impressive granite rocks of great size. The age and reason for the placement of these rocks is unknown.
