Ribeira Sacra Private Tour - 1 Day

The Ribeira Sacra tour is a great choice to discover the Ribeira Sacra region, one of the best kept secrets of Spain. It is a peaceful region, with secluded monasteries surrounded by enchanted forests that could easily belong to a fairy tale. Its cliffs form a stunning view, which becomes even more impressive when you see that in many of those cliffs the locals grow and harvest wine grapes; being such a risky business in this area that it has its own term: la viticultura heroica (the heroic viticulture). The Sil river flows through the Sil Canyon, the heart of the Ribeira Sacra. This canyon is the natural border between the provinces of Ourense and Lugo, both part of Galicia.
