The Roman conquest of the Iberian Peninsula brought a new settlement pattern in rural areas known as villas. "Villaricos" is a single-family unit for agricultural exploitation. The villa is divided into the place of residence with a thermal area and the working area with a wine press and an olive mill.Once the villa was abandoned, it was used for religious purposes with a Basilica and a graveyard built by the first Christians.
The biggest oil mill excavated in Spain is in " Los Villaricos".
