INFORMATION

Nowadays Begastri is an archaeological site in the hill ¿Cabecico Roenas¿ 3 km away from the city center of Cehegín where Iberians, Romans and Visigoths settled.

The site of Begastri is one of the most important places of the late-Roman period in Spain. The many inscriptions, definitely confirmed the location of Begastri at the Cabezo Muela, or as it was more commonly known, Cabezo de Roenas, from which the word ¿ruinas¿ (ruins) is derived.

Another important find was two huge doors of the city, the southern and eastern, around which was found a high quantity of architectural elements including remnants of sculptures and sarcophagus which are currently exhibited at the Museum in Cehegín.

There are two important features that should be mentioned. Firstly, the Cross of Cehegín, which is a splendid, monogrammed cross made of bronze. It is decorated with the Greek letters Alpha, Omega and Rho which represent God. The second is a sarcophagus, with the image of Adam, found recently on the eastern side of Begastri. This unique piece, made of Italian white marble in the workshops of Rome, was brought to Cehegín by a rich Christian in the first half of the 4th century AD.
