Castros

In the mountains of Galicia, to the northwest of the peninsula, there is today evidence of ancient settlements that were called Castros. They are evidence of a culture that dates back almost a thousand years in the past. The castros were small communities located in elevated areas, with an economy that allowed them to make transactions with merchants from the Atlantic while there are finds of agricultural tools, mining, ceramic articles and even a rudimentary way of manufacturing textiles. Among the most famous castros that we can visit we have Castro de Santa Trega (Pontevedra), Castro de San Cibrao de Las (Orense) and Castro A Cidá de Borneiro (A Coruña).
