Very close to Santiago: Rois

Socastro is located in the parish of Herbogo. The location of this “castro” (Celtic settlement) makes it visible from almost all of the surrounding parishes. It is in fine condition, but what makes it stand out from other “castros” are the numerous legends about treasures being hidden in this hill.

During the last years, an archaeological dig has been carried out by an international work camp directed by the Xunta de Galicia’s Directorate-General for Youth, in collaboration with Rois Town Council.
