The 'milladoiros' – or mounds of stones that are grouped on either side of the road leading to the church of Santo André de Teixido – are stone testimonies of the pilgrimage of thousands of people who come to the magical shrine of the Serra da Capelada.
The Gothic-Baroque church – built in the maritime architectural style – welcomes the faithful who, following tradition, drink from the fountain of the Tres Caños, ask the saint for a wish and throw a piece of bread into the water. If the bread does not sink, it will attract good luck to the life of the pilgrim. The "sanandreses" or "herba de namorar" (sea pinks) are part of this rite, which is historically played out near the cliffs of Vixía Herbeira, the highest in the Iberian Peninsula.
From an eighteenth-century stone lookout stone lookout post, the visitor can marvel at the grandeur of the Atlantic Ocean.
