The San Anton Castle was an old fortification for defending the city of A Coruña. It is situated in front of the Paseo do Parroted, in the former island known as "Lila da Pena Grande”. During its period as an island (from the 40s to the 20th century), San Antón would communicate with the city from the Casa de Botes or do Boteiro (House of Boats) - current library of the museum.

The Fortress of San Paio de Narla was purchased in 1939 by the Provincial Council of Lugo. In 1983 was turned into an etnographic and history museum, moving many etnographic collections from the Museum of Lugo.

The fortress was destroyed during the 15th century Irmandiños disturbances and rebuilt during the following 16th and 17th centuries. The central part is flanked by the Homenaxe Tour (Homenage Tour) and a large turret.
