The castro of Santa Tecla or Santa Trega is located in the top of the mountain of the same name of about 300 meters of altitude within the municipal term of A Guarda. Located in this situation to clearly favor its defense. Having around them slopes ranging from twenty-five percent to fifty percent unevenness. The location is excellent as it is located between the mouth of the river Miño and the Atlantic Ocean. It is a clearly strategic location. We also have to keep in mind that there are good areas for fishing, shellfish and farmland. It occupies an approximate extension of 700 m by 300m. It is one of the largest castros in the Northwest.

The origins are estimated in the Bronze Age around the 2nd and 1st centuries BC. although its later Roman influence is appreciated, as the rectangular houses and the defensive walls.

Circular constructions predominate, although we can also observe some of oval and square plants, the latter of clear Roman influence. Some of the buildings had vestibule, built with stone walls and covered with wood and straw with a central pillar. They had no windows the only access was through the door. They communicated with narrow, paved streets. They also had a small square.

We have to keep in mind that the pre-Roman castros were round because of mythological motives, since the spirits had no corners could not be retained in them.

The enclosure is walled with two doors.

It was abandoned by the second century AD.

The Castle of Pambre stands on a steep cliff on the Pambre River that exercises natural defense, in the province of Lugo, A Ulloa region, municipality of Palas de Rei, north of the parish of Pambre, place of A Tower , 45 kilometers from Lugo. You can reach it from Pambre, road CP-40-08. To get there from the town of Palas de Rei you have to exit by the main road towards Santiago de Compostela. One kilometer you have to take a detour on the left with a sign indicating Castelo de Pambre. From here, although it is indicated, it is necessary to travel about 10 kilometers for tracks of forest type, with several crosses.
The castle of Pambre was built at the end of the 14th century by Don Gonzalo Ozores de Ulloa. For years it was the scene of the struggles between Pedro I and Enrique de Trastamara, and later between the nobility and the archbishop of Santiago, Don Alonso de Fonseca and Acevedo. After passing through the hands of the Ulloa, in 1484, passed to property of the counts of Monterrei. In 1895, the Duke of Alba sold the fort together with his property and other buildings to Don Jose Soto, neighbor of Palas de Rei, for 27,000 pesetas. Finally, after belonging to the Moreiras Blanco family since 1912, it is currently owned by Mr. Manuel Taboada Fernández, Count of Borraxeiros.
The castle of Pambre is the best example of medieval military architecture that exists in Galicia, the few that would remain in the brotherhood revolution.

The outer wall adapts to the terrain configuration. Its thickness is 2 to 2.5 meters, reaching 5 meters in the area of ​​the door. This access door is a semicircular arch, and has the coat of arms of the family Ulloa in the key. To the right of the entrance is the chapel of San Pedro, built at the end of the 12th century.

The castle is of square plan, with four towers located in the vertices, and forms a second wall with door towards the west with the same arms. In the center is the tower of the homage, of square plant, 11 meters of side and three plants. The first floor is blind. The second floor rises about 5 meters from the ground and there are vestiges that allow to imagine an interior bridge that would communicate this plant with the wall, through a door with pointed arch and coat of arms of the Ulloa. On the third floor there is a large window with pointed arches.

All towers are crenellated cantilevered with battlements in point or triangle, and its interior is illuminated through small windows with speakers, interior spill and recessed arch.
