In this work, we present an example of multidisciplinary research in Archaeoastronomy. We have analyzed in detail a well known and excavated hillfort and an Iron Age cemetery placed in the celtiberian area of the Iberian Peninsula. Adding to this, we used this data in a museological project. As is becoming the custom in archaeological sites, a monographic museum has been built near from the site. In the other hand, to fill this data out, several astronomical information is given to visitors in cultural context.
