Continue to Castro to stop for lunch at your own expense. Visit the typical stilted houses in the Gamboa district, the main square, and the Nercón Church which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Originally constructed around 1890, the church is considered a national monument.

Nice activity. We could see a lot of small typical villages and the guide explained very well what there was to know. I found it a bit redundant to see the same type of villages (at the end of the 4th it's a lot) but otherwise it was nice.
