Asta Regia was an ancient city established with high probability in the Atlantic Late Bronze Age that would have lasted until the 10th century AD. His archaeological remains are now buried under wheat fields in the rural neighbourhood of Mesas de Asta in Jerez de la Frontera, on a vast 60-hectare plot of land. The city, which would have been occupied by Tartessians, Phoenicians, Turdetans, Romans and Islamists, would have reached an area of 25 hectares in its maximum period of splendour, which have been analysed since 2017 with georadar.
