Castro de Vilarinho dos Galegos

Castro dating from the iron age, located on a cliff over the River Douro, hard-to-reach location, chosen by good natural defences. The defences were strengthened with a field of stones on their own, a moat, a turret and a line of walls.
Here you can find rare fauna, since the Bonelli's Eagle, black stork and the vulture of Egypt.
