LOCATION.- The archaeological area in Neixуn is situated in the

parish of Saint Vicenzo de Cespуn (Boiro municipality). Neixуn is

considered one of most interesting cultural landscapes of the

Barbanza peninsula. Therefore, not only is it a geographic symbol

in this part of the Arousa estuary, and a natural space of

considerable beauty, but it also presents itself as a very

important archaeological site for the understanding of

Prehistoric Galicia.

The denominated Castro Grande (Big Fort) of Neixon is a fortified

settlement probably constructed around the C. IV BC. Its strong

boundary wall, formed by barricaded earth, protects the point

from easy access along the isthmus.

In the Archaeological Centre of Barbanza building, besides the

archaeological area in Neixуn, is hosted a permanent and

interactive exhibition, from recent prehistory to Romanization of

Galicia. Here we find the most significant material remains

recovered since 2003 at Castro Grande by youngsters who attend

the annual international work camp.
