Interesting sites...


Ría de Arousa


The convent in Armenteira (Meis),  – run by a female religious community – is the largest monument. Added to it is an almost endless list of other, smaller, monuments, among those which should be mentioned (in a north to south direction) are the fortress that houses the museo de Valle Inclán (A Pobra do Caramiñal), the Castellum Honesti or Torres do Oeste (Catoira), Santa Mariña Dozo (Cambados) and the Roman remains of Adro Vello (O Grove).
We cannot end without recalling that, since the 60s of the past century, the Ría de Arousa has the only maritime via crucis in the world, as these waters define a Way of St. James, the Sea Route of Arousa-Río Ulla,  which commemorates the arrival in Galicia by sea of the body of St James the Greater. Indeed, this is where the Apostle's lifeless body arrived in the boat of stone, which also held two of his favourite disciples. Today, this Sea Route of Arousa-Río Ulla has become a tourist attraction for people from all over the world.
