A visit to the ruins of the castle of the Counts of Ribadavia
The ruins of the castle of the Counts of Ribadavia, – at the top of the village – are its iconic symbol. Abandoned since the seventeenth century, its grandiosity as one of Galicia’s largest mediaeval fortresses can still be seen. We invite you to pass through its three remaining gates in the wall: the Porta de Cerca Oeste, facing the Alameda; the Porta de Celanova, to the south, connected to the river, and the Porta Falsa, to the southeast in direction of the mill. You can take a break from your walk at the viewpoint in Praza Buján square, where you can watch the River Avia as it flows by, finally ending up in the River Miño.
