  • Benedictine monastery abandoned in the Ribeira Sacra. At present, have undertaken several times tasks of restoration, with different success outcomes. Nevertheless, it is a site that is worth a visit, as the ruins are still very full. The views are breathtaking, and it is easy to imagine the monastic life in such a place. The road end on an Esplanade where it is easy to Park, although it is not very crowded, even on holidays.

  • Must visit if you go to the Ribera Sacra. Charged entrance but the amount is almost symbolic. Beautiful surroundings. Spectacular architecture.
