It was declared a National Historical and Artistic Monument in 1931 and only a small part of the site has been excavated.
It is one of the most advanced hill forts in the peninsula and even has a restored house. Highlights include the composition and zoning of the streets and its water channelling system. The houses are grouped into districts of eight houses with a fortification around the whole. Circular constructions predominate, in many cases with an entrance hall, but there are also oval and square constructions.
There is also a small museum which exhibits pieces from the excavation.
