History

Shortly beyond the village, a mere 50m off the camino to your left, are the remains of the Iron Age castro that gives the town its name. It is seldom visited (there are no signs) but is worth an exploration. It can be found before the point where you meet the main road.

To find the Castro, keep going up the hill past the new-looking cement building. As of October 2021, the building was incomplete and there was nothing to see around it. Pilgrims milled around it thinking it was the Castro- it is not. Keep going up the hill off the Camino just a bit farther.

The albergue as you enter the town has food. Nowhere else does . Stop there if you’re hungry

No shops or bars in this village is open 2020 due to covid, so if you sleep here bring food!

Casa pedrigueira is the above mentioned pension we stayed in. I think it might be newish.
