Long Description:
This Runestone can be found in front of the sea next to the S. Paio beach. According to the information plaque is origins was probably a viking campsite.

The plaque reads:
"In the S. Paio area three engravings other than the "polishing stones" were identified in the 1960's by the Castro discoverer Fernando Lanhas. These three engravings suggest a strong symbolism whith the whole area. The southern engraving seems to be an Algiz; a Nordic runic alphabet element and a symbol to evoke divine protection. it can be traced to the iron age, but it is more likely to have come from some norman Viking camp that was built in the area."
