LOCATION.- The Viladonga archaeological site (Castro de

Viladonga) has always stood out on the landscape due to its

monumental character. The settlement is positioned on the summit

of a hillock and has an ample panoramic view of the Terra Chб

territory and the Monciro, Pradorio, an Meira sierras. The

territory belongs to the Castro de Rey municipality and it is

located at a distance of 23 km of the city of Lugo (117 km from

Monforte de Lemos, 126 km away from Ourense and 162 km from

Santiago de Compostela).

The Viladonga site is considered as a formal model of an inland

Castro settlement. The fort has various ramparts and ditches,

which protect the two “antecastros” and other extensive areas.

Recovered objects as well as the settlement’s defensive and

residential estructures provide evidence of a vastly prolonged

occupation, especially significant between the end of 2nd and the

5th centuries AD; therefore, Viladonga is a singular and key

settlement for the study and comprehension of the Romanization

period, which represents a decisive chapter of Galicia’s history.

The Castro and the Museum besides display in a pleasant and

didactic manner the heritage and the culture of Viladonga site.

NOTE: This workcamp has no access for physical disabled people.
