Departing from Ourense
We will begin our trip in Ourense, we will then take state road N-540 (Ourense- Lugo) to Chantada, where we will admire the town’s historic district with its famous arcades and colonnades. We shall then travel along the Corredor Rápido Monforte-Lalín (CRG-2.1), and shortly after crossing the new bridge over the River Miño, on the right hand side there is a sign leading to the Church of Santo Estevo de Ribas de Miño. This is a magnificent example of the Romanesque style typical of the Ribeira Sacra. The church perfectly adapts to the rocky slope and towers over the valley of the Miño River; and offers views of the reservoir of Belesar. In addition to admiring the monument, visitors can enjoy wonderful panoramic views over the western hillside of the Miño River, covered with tiered terraces.
