Castro da Sancha

Erected on top of a hill 665 meters above sea level, and with a great mastery over the surrounding landscape, this fortified Iron Age settlement stands out for its trapezoidal plan which give it three lines of walls of granite, being the housing zone bounded by the first line of wall torn by three access entries. On site has collected a considerable number of potsherds smooth and decorated, which attests to the three periods of occupation checked in this town: the iron age, the Romanisation and the medieval times. In addition to these elements, were also exhumed several numismas, fibulae, cossouros, granite millstones, spearheads, a knife, an axe and three Roman epigraphs.
