The largest acropolis in Galicia
The Castle of Monterrei is the result of a series of military and residential constructions, made up of three walled enclosures that include the Palacio de los Condes, built in the Renaissance style, and the spectacular towers of the Keep and Las Damas.
The strategic importance of this magnificent building led to it being used for many purposes, from a medieval castle to a manor house, barracks and even a pilgrims’ hospital. It was also the birthplace of printing in Galicia: the Misal Auriense, the oldest printed book in Galicia, was printed there in 1494.
