Muros is an unexpected mix of popular and elegant architecture. In its squares, streets, arches and arcades, old fishermen's houses coexist with Gothic mansions. Noia amazes with its noble houses, magnificent public buildings and its numerous churches and chapels... Like "a small Compostela". The estuary offers many beaches – most of spanking white sand – such as those of Ancoradoiro, San Francisco, Aguieira, As Furnas and Basoñas. There are also important archaeological remains and fortified pre-Roman Iron Age villages – such as the one in Baroña, adjacent to the sea and a wonderful beach.
