Castro de Coaña Iron-Age settlement

A particularly well-preserved example of a pre-Roman village.

"Castros" are ancient settlements in Asturias, Galicia and Cantabria dating back before the Roman conquest, and situated atop a hill, Coaña is a particularly large and spectacular one, surrounded by a wall with a trench in front of it. And unlike other castros in the region, it's extraordinarily well preserved, considering it dates back to the 4th century BC. During your guided tour you'll see what is thought to have been the town square, as well as villagers' stone huts (including even some household items), a pair of structures thought to have been saunas, and points where sentries were posted. The orderliness and urban organisation of this little village's lanes and squares is truly remakable.
