   The excavated, very low entrance at the top of the field leads to a flat out bedding which becomes too low at a point which must be very close to the ramps and the "prehistoric" wall in Cueva del Agua (059).

   Three flint tools and sea shells were found here in early 1993. Ruiz Cobo Jesús and Smith Peter et al, 2001 classifies the site as a temporary shelter of Mesolithic age.
