Vimianzo. Do mar á terra.


1. Castro de As Barreiras

Castro de As Barreiras

This is a Celtic castro located almost at the edge of Vimianzo town centre (+43° 7’ 8” -9° 2’ 8").

The site is fortified with an earthen wall surrounded by a ditch that served as a defence element to the inhabitants of the settlement.

Its uniqueness lies in that it is located in a valley, when usually this kind of settlements were located in hills or mountain slopes, to have a better view of possible attackers.
