The "Castro de Coaña, Coaña"
Current configuration has been dated to the Celt-Roman era, around 1st century AD, though
the settlement is believed to have existed from the early Iron Age.
The mission of it was to guarantee the gold trade coming from the near mines.
A first indigenous settlement was responsible for the building of circular constructions.
During the Roman period these buildings had a rectangular shape.
