Up to the green 'castros' and beyond

By Victoria García

Calm seaside villages, fortified Castros (celtic hill-forts) in high hill summits. From commercial to those engaged in fish salting settlements. From the Castreño world to the Roman world. The program "In search of Galician-Roman footprint" allows us to discover 18 interesting settlements in the province of Pontevedra. Each one has its own story and everyone has a distinctive feature that invites you to get to know them all.
