The archaeological site of La Ciadella has been interpreted since its discovery at the beginning of the 20th century as a Roman settlement of undetermined functionality or as a road mansion. It was La. de él Castillo in the decade of the 30’s which rightly interprets it as a Roman camp. This researcher was the first to carry out official excavations in 1934. In 1981 the excavations were resumed and continued in 1983, 1989-90-91-92-93. The site is marked by the Xunta de Galicia in 1990.
The campsite is rectangular with rounded corners. Its dimensions are: 172 m long and 140 m wide, which is equivalent to a total area of 2.40 Ha, which are the ideal measurements for the settlement of a military unit of 500 men, i.e. a cohort.
The camp’s defensive system was based on a wall that enclosed the entire enclosure and a hole that ran parallel to it on the outside.
