After two centuries of existence, La Bastida sponsored the foundation of at least one subsidiary enclave: Tira del Lienzo. Thus, about 4000 years ago, this new fortified settlement was built with two fundamental objectives: the protection and administrative control of the plain. The later development of La Bastida affected this town in the form of extensions and reforms and, above all, the installation of a silver jewellery workshop.

The atypical character of the settlement, destined for administrative and productive tasks, could be the reason for the scarcity and dispersal of tombs. Only four have been documented. Unfortunately, two of them, in cist and located in the plain outside the town, were looted before the official excavations. Those who frequented Tira del Lienzo were most likely buried in other places, such as Cabeza Gorda or La Bastida.

The first of the constructions was the wall, in whose southeast and northeast corners small bastions or projections are preserved.

In the most recent phase of occupation, at least nine semi-detached enclosures with a rectangular or trapezoidal plan were built. These constructions were arranged around a large central building, up to three times larger than the previous ones. A street and a small square separate them.
