Built in 1396 by Fernan Perez de Andrade on lands owned by the Monastery of
Sobrado, Los Andrade Castle is a perfect example of a Galician rock
From its high location, the castle dominates the sea entrances of
Pontedeume, Ferrol and Betanzos.
It comprises of a 20 m high keep and an irregularly shaped enclosure adapted
to its rocky foundation. Traces of a moat can be seen surrounding it.
This is the castle where the Andrade family took refuge after the siege of
Moeche castle by the Irmandinos.
The Andrade's Castle can be visited only in the summer
months, but it is worth visiting it as from its top the castle offers magnificient views.
