The Castro of Santa Trega is a castro and an archaeological site that is in the outline of the mount of Santa Trega, in the county of A Guarda province of Pontevedra. Belonging to the castreja culture and the most emblematic and visited of the Galician castros, it was declared National Artistic Historical Monument in 1931 and also has the consideration of Well of Cultural Interest.
The castro, according to the thesis maintained by de la Peña Santos, director of the last campaigns of archaeological excavations in the 1980s, had a continuous occupation between the first century BC, shortly after the Romanization process began in Galicia, and the first century and that from that moment began a slow process of abandonment, which might well have been interrupted by temporary sporadic reoccupations in the Late Roman period. Petroglyphs were also found in several of the stones of the hill, elaborated around 2000 years before the occupation of the castro.
