A live-streaming virtual tour taking you back in time centuries ago!

Take a live-streaming virtual tour with us climbing to the top of Castro de Montealegre in Domaio, Moaña, Galicia, Spain. A small archaeological site dating from 1st Century BC (But the whole hill-fort dates as far back as 8th Century BC) with remains of the Celtic (Pre-Roman Castrexa Culture) Huts and Petroglyphs rock carvings. It actually was a very big hill-fort, which reached 3 hectares (7.4 acres) and is estimated to have been inhabited by about 300 people, it is considered along with hill-forts such as Santa Trega or San Cibrao among the largest found in Galicia.

What is a Castro?

A castro is a Hill-fort (fortified settlement) normally associated with the Celtic culture. They can be found in Northern Spain, particularly in Asturias, Galicia, Cantabria, Basque Country and the province of Ávila. Even after the Celts, they were inhabited by the local Iron-Age Castrexa culture (People of the Hill-forts).

Walk amongst the ruins while hearing about the History and Artifacts found here.

We will take a walk through the woodland trails surrounding this historic site up the hill at 400 metres (1313 feet) high, with high slopes of up to 55%. Here they found several round and oval stone buildings (huts).  The castro has a defensive wall on its southwestern slope and a natural slope to the west and north. Montealegre was excavated by Antonio Losada Diéguez in two campaigns (1925-1926). They found over 20,000 artifacts on this site, pieces of all kinds: ceramic, stone, hooks, needles and fibulae made of bronze, remains of amphorae, kitchen appliances, even a coin with the effigy of the Roman emperor Tiberius (14-37 AD), which proves the later Romanization of this site. At the top of the hill, there are several petroglyphs rock carvings that date back even before the hill-fort.

Listen to Galician Celtic Music and enjoy the Amazing Views while Live-Streaming!

A very interesting site for the lovers of history, archaeology and nature and an excellent presentation from both Sean and Tiernan! Thank you for this late afternoon walk. NB: the light before sunset was an extra super-plus credit!

Another great tour of the father & son duo :-) No one would expect such a quiet archeological spot right next to the highway. Thank you for showing us that hidden jewel.

Another great little hike, with lots of history and information. I like that always starts with a map to show the area and some background. The added Celtic music while showing the area really added to the feeling of "being there in those times". Great tour!
