One of the best, in the history of Coruña, next to the Torre de Hèrcules. They should give more publicity and attention to this beautiful place. Access can be improved.

Inaccesible tanto a coche como a pie, no se si será algo eventual por reforma o si será siempre así. Una lástima

I have been many years ago, when I was still almost unexcavated; I have gone today, but it is not open at any time. You must register to visit it. I give 3 stars because the schedules and information here are not up to date.

A pity that it is not open to the public all day. From the road you can see slightly.

The guided visit to the castro is well worth it, much less known and promoted than the historical and archaeological value of the site deserves. The Castro is in a quiet place from which you can see La Coruña. The visit is very complete and helps you to recognize and interpret the different structures and to imagine what life could be like in the fort and the relationship with Carthaginians and Romans during the time it was inhabited.

Frösö Runestone

Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.

Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
