O Ribeiro


The geo-destination, O Ribeiro, contains the municipalities:  A Arnoia, Amoeiro, Avión, Beade, Beariz, Boborás, Carballeda de Avia, Castrelo de Miño, Cenlle, Cortegada, Leiro, Maside, Melón, O Carballiño, O Irixo, Piñor, Pontedeva, Punxín, Ribadavia, San Amaro and San Cristovo de Cea.

Located in the heart of the province of Ourense, O Ribeiro is a land of fertile valleys crossed by numerous rivers such as the Miño, the Arnoia or the Avia. O Ribeiro is synonymous with wine, and in the Middle Ages the monks of the Monastery of San Clodio de Leiro made sure it reached the stately tables of Spain and Portugal. In fact, the D.O. Ribeiro is the oldest in Galicia and one of the first recognised in Spain.

And for lovers of art, a whole world to discover. Such as the Romanesque Route, the Parque Arqueolóxico de San Cibrao Las, one of the largest and most spectacular fortified pre-Roman Iron Age villages in Galicia, or the Cistercian monastery of Oseira of Oseira, considered "the Galician Escorial" because of its magnificence.

n addition, O Ribeiro is a land of spas and hot springs. Arnoia, Laias, Cortegada, Berán and Prexigueiro are perfect for a relaxing getaway. And do not miss Ribadavia, famous for its Jewish quarter – one of the most important in Spain – and its big festivals. In neighbouring O Carballiño, they also celebrate the 'Festa do Polbo' in which one of the delicacies of Galicia, the octopus, is honoured.
