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.

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.
