Pilar de la Horadada, possibly known in that period as “mansió de Thiar”, was a peaceful place of commercial exchange, located at the foot of Vía Augusta, one of the oldest in Hispania and formerly known as Vía Haráclea. This milestone located on the roadway during the late-Roman period indicates its point of destination in miles.
