  • A castro that does not leave indifferent, not only by the constructions, but by the place where it is located. The natural park is exceptional, the greens and nature coexist with the site in harmony. Without a doubt, a must if you visit Ourense, it is well worth it.

  • Surprising chaste village on top of a promontory a few kilometers from Ourense. The entrance to the village can be deceived by being the least spectacular in terms of constructions. It is surrounding the entire hill and climbing to the highest point where you can see the true intentionality of its location and the urban planning that they already had at the time with a main avenue that divides the Roman downtown into equal parts. It is unforgivable that there is no interpretation center for the less knowledgeable of this period or a guide service that allows to get tarnished of all that the castro offers. I hope Jácome makes the proper arrangements and turns the site at the forefront of archaeological research at the height of Altamira or Gizeh.

  • One of the most beautiful Celtic and Roman settlements I've ever been to. All in an incomparable natural setting.
  • A tan só 3 Km. da cidade de Ourense atopamos o asentamento galaico-romano de Santomé. Desde unha perspectiva arqueolóxica, Santomé destaca por ser un dos poucos exemplos da Península onde aínda se pode observar a convivencia, no tempo e no espazo, de dúas culturas moi diferentes: na parte máis elevada, restos dun castro, poboación fortificada propia da cultura castrexa (pobos celtas da Idade de Ferro); na chaira, unha típica vila galaico-romana. O asentamento foi ocupado desde o s. I a.c. até o II d.c. pra ser novamente empregado no s. III d.c.
