Of interest...

The result of this legacy is the Sil and Miño land, with a valuable heritage of monasteries – which irradiated art, culture and progress to all of Galicia.

  • Ribeira Sacra - Cabo do Mundo

The Ribeira Sacra is formed by a group of 20 municipalities belonging to the southern part of the province of Lugo and the northern part of Ourense, both in the inland of Galicia. The element that brings them together is the watercourse of the Miño, Sil and Cabe Rivers. That flow to their confluence through throats and canyons with a strong verticality, forming a unique landscape and a singular land.

Hence the name Ribeira Sacra (Rivoyra Sacrata), of which there is evidence since the XII century; all along it we can find monasteries like those of San Estevo de Ribas de Sil (today it’s a Parador), Santa Cristina, San Pedro de Rocas, Xunqueira de Espadanedo, Montederramo, Ferreira de Pantón churches such as those of San Paio de Diomondi, San Miguel de Eiré,…. - .

In this territory we also find dolmens and megalithic tombs that evidence a very early settlement, continuing with important traces of a Roman presence. The spectacular viewpoints over the Cañón del Sil (Sil River canyons) is a must to admire the monumental landscape.

On the sunny banks the vineyards descend in terraces almost up to the river while a growth of oaks, chestnuts and birches complement from the other bank of the river the chromatic richness of the panorama; the particularity and difficulty of this orography lets us talk about the Heroic Viticulture of the Ribeira Sacra .
