Very near to the village the remains of a roman town called Labitolosa can be found, which is currently restored by archeologists.

On a hill at about 3 km's from La Puebla de Castro the old town can be found, with a couple of remains of the castle and the roman lobardic hermitage of San Román de Castro, dating back to the 12th century.
