An ancient archaeological site dating to 1600 BC. Experts have speculated that its location on the top of a peak gave the builders control of a nearby bay. Another hypothesis is that Aldas was used for religious ceremonies. It was constructed from a grid of masonry and mud, with foundations laid with reed sacks filled with rocks from the mountain. The principal platform is surrounded by 17 lateral and secondary pyramids.
