Castrate of Castromaior, located in Portomarín, will soon have an ethnographic museum and interpretive center. This is a proposal by the council itself, because of the historical interest of this Celtic fortified settlement, as well as cultural and tourist interest thereof, as Castromaior is located on the Camino de Santiago, thanks to recent changes made to the French Way. Previously the route passed about 200 meters from castro, resulting invisible to the pilgrims.

The City Council allocated 200,000 euros a game for this project, which aims to complete the work this year and convert Castromaior a tourist resource for the area. Castromaior also is of significant historical interest to those skilled in the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula.
