Castro de São Vicente da Chã/ Castro dos Mouros

This fortified village preserves a part of three lines of ramparts and a moat that surrounds it partially. Is strategically deployed at a bend in the River, Rabagão being championed by this. In the intermediate wall still observes a door of access to the town.
Everything indicates that the castro has developed especially in the upper platforms, within the limits of the second wall, because they are there visible ruins of Castro apparatus. The village surrounds the cabeço, except for an extension of outer wall for a natural rechã where if you identify some constructs. A distinction is made, on this site, traces of structures, fragments of pottery and pieces of iron slag. All indications are that the habitation would have an extensive urban area, including a sector with evident metallurgical activity.
The existing traces date back to the iron age, with little evident traces of romanization, although if keep, relatively close, the route of the Via Romana.
