And the imprint of Rome

If the time of the castros was intense, during the Roman domination the culture, economy and society reached moments of great splendor. The remains are found throughout the entire municipality and are evident even in the immaterial culture of the population. The necropolis shows a coexistence of cultures: the traditional Celtic roots and the new Latin ways of understanding the world.


There is practically no valley in which there is no reference of the moment.

We know of at least two agricultural nuclei, where two large funerary inscriptions were found.
There is a Roman mining settlement of some size, which was partly excavated in the 1970s along with more than a hundred tombs of an adjoining cemetery.

Nearby is also the Roman bridge of Las Mohedas, which was rebuilt in the Middle Ages.

The last days of the Empire and the arrival of the Visigoths is reflected in the interesting collection of tombs made in living rock that we have in the Finca de Miguel Perez.

Aras, stelae, tegulas, a very interesting collection of ceramic pieces and some utensils and coins can be found in the Geopark Archaeology Interpretation Center, where all this material is exhibited.
