The "Castro de Barona" is the excavated site of an old Celtic fortress settlement and is situated on a highly exposed and rugged outcrop of land some twenty three thousand square metres in area. It is connected to the mainland by a narrow sandy stretch (over which you walk to reach it) and occupies a position about halfway down the Porto do Son coastline.

The ruins appear to occupy two of the three mounds that form the outcrop and are only a couple of feet in height. Its occupation is dated between century I B.C and I A.D.

In truth, what remains of the fort is more easily distinguished from a distance than in close up.
