Location:
The Miño river flows between picturesque bends, pleasant river beaches, sunny vineyards, ancient hamlets and beautiful farmhouses. From early medieval times the area was often visited by monks and knights looking for spiritual peace on the sacred riverbanks (Ribeira Sacra). The many churches, convents and monasteries, most of them in Romanesque style, are a testimony of its sacred history. The area enjoys its own pleasant microclimate and is noted for its excellent wines (Mencia and Godello) and food and infinite historical monuments (castles, manor houses, Romanesque churches, monasteries, etc.). There are plenty of things to do in this region and major activities are for example sightseeing, boat trips by catamaran on the river, fishing, swimming, mountain biking, walking trips along the river, etc. You can also visit the beautiful Romanesque churches and monasteries in the area (Panton, Eiré, Atan, San Fiz de Cangas, Diomondi, Santo Estevo de Ribas de Miño, Seteventos, San Victorio de Ribas de Miño, etc.). The charming lively town of Monforte de Lemos is located at 20 minutes by car and offers all necessary amenities, facilities and services, such as a hospital, hypermarkets, all kind of local shops, banks, schools, bars and restaurants. During the Middle Ages, the town became an important centre in Galicia. Here you can still find many interesting historical monuments. Worth to visit are for example the huge 17th century building of Nuestra Señora de Antigua (well known as El Cardenal, with some paintings of El Greco in a museum), the monastery of San Vicente do Pino and the medieval castle and palace of the counts of Lemos (today a “Parador”, by the state owned Hotel), the old Jewish quarter, the convent of “Las Clarisas” with an important museum of sacred art and the lovely bridge over the river Cabe.
