This archaeological complex is located in a mount next to Machicão water stream. Castro de Cola is a fortified village dates back to the Iron Age. It was reinforced under Arab occupation and abandoned in the 14th century. It looks like a complex of geometric figures made of overlapping stones. Nowadays, only the wall remains, the battlements, a cistern engraved in the stone and house vestiges have lingered. In the surroundings, Senhora da Cola hermitage is a famous place of devotion among locals.
