At the end of this part of the route we get to the Point Castelo. There, in the summit, getting into the sea, we see another vestige of History that dates back to the Iron Age: the Castro of Castromiñán.
As we are getting closer, we can see perfectly the two walls. At first sight, it seems a place impossible to live in but, as it happens in all the castros, the place chosen to build it is not by chance. The existence of the water of some springs used to be the main factor to decide the place where the castro would be built. Our ancestors managed to build a watchtower in the highest part to protect themselves against the coldest winds. From up there, they could control everything without being seen and, surrounded by cliffs, they didn´t need anything else to defend against anything.
Next to it, the Point Gavioteira (“gaviota” is a seagull), another challenging cliff. Its name fits the place. There is not better place for a marine bird than these isolated landscapes.
