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.
