The fort of Chano stands out for its exceptional state of preservation. About twenty buildings have been located.

The housing could reach until 5, 5 meters of diameter and its walls a thickness of 60 cm. The unique opening was the entrance door and this is elevated over the ground. They are buildings of domestic type; the center of the home had a large slab of slate, marked by sloping slabs.

The fort was lived by Astures between the century I BC, and the first half of the century I AC. A violent abandon of the village has not been documented although it have been found some coins (small treasures) in the houses, what indicates thus, a quick abandonment for still unknown reasons.
