The historic centres of the villages of Muros and Noia have hidden treasures of the sea life and the traditional architecture that are worth discovering. Their original urban structures and an air somewhere between rural and stately hide gems such as the Muíño de Marea do Pozo do Chacón, in Muros, a mill that uses the energy of the flow of the tides. It is one of the few existing in Galicia and one of the largest in Spain.
The writer Otero Pedrayo ranked Noia as the best Galician Gothic village because of the profusion of beautiful Gothic buildings in its breathtaking historic centre. The quaintness of its fishermen's' houses adds to the charm of what has been termed "the little Compostela".
