  • The ascent is durillo, there are steep slopes, but you don't need to be in particularly good shape, just take it easy. Beautiful landscape. I do not recommend doing in summer, because there is no shade. Once up, the views are great, there are explanatory posters that help make you a idea of the life of the castros there 25 centuries ago. Not expect monuments, there are only a couple of houses that have rebuilt the foundations to appreciate its form, the carved altar in stone, some of the wall, and the quarry, but the site has great charm. At least a couple of hours between which you upload, enjoy the site and low. I think an interesting site, unveiled, a pity that they have not made further excavations, and rebuilt somewhat to make it more didactic.

  • Castro de Ulaca is the largest and most important of the castros vetones. It is a must-see if you're in the area. The castro is easily accessible and it takes 45 minutes to reach the top (1,500 meters). What impressed me most were the sights, the wall and the "forge", perfectly preserved. The landscape is amazing 360 degree views where you can see the entire Valley and the mountains of the sierra de Gredos.

  • When went to this castro was in full effervescence the Lord of the rings and the landscape that it surrounds me remember to Modor. It is traced to the film. The castro is good but you need to read the signs to understand the site. The most eye-catching was for my ara.
