Castro de "São Vicente da Chã"

Montalegre
Description
This fortified village preserves a part of the three wall lines and a ditch that surrounds partially. It is strategically implanted in a bend of the river Rabagão, being defended by this. In the intermediate wall is still observed a gateway to the town. Everything indicates that the castro has developed mainly in the upper decks, within the limits of the second wall, because there are visible remains of castrejo unit buildings. The town is confined to the hill, except for an outer wall extension to a natural plateau which identifies some buildings. They are distinguished, in this place, traces of structures, fragments of pottery and iron slag pieces. Everything indicates that the village would have a large urban area, including a sector with obvious metallurgical activity. The existing remains date back to the iron-age, with little evident traces of Romanization, although conserved, relatively close to the route of the Via Romana XVII.
