Traditional architecture / ethnography and landscape
We are in A Ribeira Sacra, a natural and cultural destination of the first order.
It starts out in Rosende fair grounds and skirts the wall of the rural tourism Casa Grande mansion.
In Albarán, it follows a vineyard service track that leads towards the valley of the River Cabe. The road winds through Mencía grape vines which the famous wine with D.O. Ribeira Sacra is made from, a drink appreciated as far back as Roman times.
A short derivation leads to Areas with very simple constructions that some theories date back to early anchoret inhabitants that sought peace in this land, in contact with nature.
In Portizó and Hortás you can see fine examples of traditional architecture. Again, a short derivation leads to the rural tourism house "Rectory of Anllo" where walkers can stop off on the way to freshen up. Forests and vineyards give beautiful panoramic views over the Cabe and Sil valleys. Past the Camilo bridge, we come to the road running down to the catamaran jetty. A beautiful spot for spending a while drinking in the superb landscape.
