Cómo llegar

The castro is signposted from Silleda town centre. A street leads from here to the PO-201, in the direction of Cortegada. After just a few metres you will see a sign for Castro de Toiriz, in the urban nucleus of the same name. Once here, and after a further 285 m., a path on the right-hand side will lead you to the entrance to the castro, just in front of a farm.


The site is open and free.


The site is accessible. The tour follows a path with only very slight gradients.


Visitors are asked to respect the archaeological remains. Their conservation depends upon your collaboration.

Carboeiro Monastery (Silleda)

A Benedictine monastery built in the 10th century and situated on the banks of the River Deza. Architecturally, it is an example of the transition from the Romanesque to the late Gothic, constituting one of the most characteristic monuments of medieval Galician art and influenced by Compostelan art forms; specifically, by the style created by Master Mateo in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.

A Fervenza do Toxa (Toxa Waterfall) (Silleda)

The Deza Trail passes alongside Carboeiro Monastery and the free-falling waterfall, which, at 30 m, is the tallest in Galicia. The water itself comes from the River Toxa, a tributary of the Deza, lending its name to the waterfall. The trail crosses a leafy wood of oaks, chestnuts, birches and other autochthonous species, creating a unique landscape to captivate visitors.
