The D.O. Monterrei is located in the southeast part of the province of Ourense, bordering the Portuguese frontier. This area bases its tourist attraction mainly on the richness of its architectural heritage and on the beauty of its landscape.
One of its most emblematic and renowned monuments is – badge of the D.O. - the Condes de Monterrei castle of the XII century, being today a national monument. The first printer’s press of Galicia was installed in this castle and in its weapons court we can find the so called pozo verde (green well) surrounded by legends of infidelity and suicides like that of the wife of D. Pedro el Cruel (Peter the cruel).
The Ruta de la Plata (Southeast Way) crosses this D.O.; following this Saint James Way we find the town of Verín, famous for its Entroido (carnival), an obliged date within the touristic and cultural landscape of Galicia. It’s about an ancestral custom that surprises the visitor, who soon goes from being a simple spectator to fully participating in that great popular event.
