Absolutely fascinating 1st century AD Celtic settlement on the coast. The structures are brilliantly intact and the scenery is stunning. We were there out of season so the information booth at the side of the road was not open. The trek down on foot is...More
This is definitely in my top five most astonishing places visited in recent years. It’s quite a long and hard walk down from the main road but it’s worth every step. The remains of the settlement are on a rocky headland reminiscent of the Cornish...More
The Castro de Barona is a stunning sight to see for anyone in the Rias Baixas region of Galicia, and even from further afield. The ruins are very well preserved for something of that age and furthermore they are unspoiled by other more recent edifices...More
