The Celtic nation of Galicia, in northwest Spain, are cousins of the Irish. As the embarkation point of Celts who migrated to Ireland, Galiza developed the Castro culture of communities of Palloza stone roundhouses, surrounded by stone walls. When I visited Portugal in 1999, I saw this architecture preserved at Citania de Briteiros. Similarities to Irish art are apparent in these ancient Galician stone motifs.
The Galicians also bred the Gallego, the bay-colored mountain horse that is the ancestor of horses in Ireland and later Mexico, from which my buckskin Galaceno Weesa was descended. A good working horse, as well as sturdy riding horse.
