The Ribeira Sacra

Ribeira Sacra’s unique combination of nature, history and culture and gastronomy makes it the perfect destination for any time of the year.

The Guardian.

One of Spain’s most mysterious regions, Ribeira Sacra is home to spectacular gorges and rivers, ancient monasteries and some of the country’s best wine.
Straddling the provinces of Lugo and Ourense in the middle of Galicia sits La Ribeira Sacra, one of Spain’s least known and most mysterious areas. Its rivers, Miño and Sil, which meet at the region’s heart, mould the landscape, gouging out vast canyons and vertiginous valleys. Thick green forests frame these rivers and hide medieval monasteries, whose presence gives the area a sort of hushed spirituality.
And then there’s the wine, the area’s most famous export. The valley slopes are lined with centuries-old terraced grapevines. To visit the Ribeira Sacra is to visit a different Spain, a quieter, greener country.

Things to do

In addition to rest and enjoy an absolute tranquillity, the Ribeira Sacra offers us many possibilities.

The Ribeira Sacra has many interesting places to visit. To enjoy stunning scenery, you may go to the following viewpoints to observe the magnificent Sil River Canyon:

  • Os Torgás (Balcóns de Madrid)
  • Triguás, Pena da Cividade
  • Cabezoá
  • O Picotiño
  • A Costa.

One of the best ways to enjoy the Sil River Canyon is by catamaran; there are several routes of different durations. The closest pier to our apartments is Santo Estevo.

You can also visit the Mao River´s Footbridge where you will find a recently restored A Fabrica da Luz.

Culture & Heritage

The Ribeira Sacra has one of the highest concentrations of Romanesque architecture in Spain. To know about Ribeira Sacra´s history, we highly recommend you visit some of the most outstanding monuments of Spanish Romanesque:

  • Monastery of Santa Cristina de Ribas de Sil
  • Monastery of Santo Estevo de Ribas de Sil
  • Monastery of San Pedro de Rocas
  • Monastery of Montederramo
  • Monastery of Xunqueira de Espadañedo

You could visit the recently discovered San Victor’s necropolis of Roman ages with a high archaeological value.

Leisure and sport activities

Walking or hiking will allow you to enjoy nature as its best, because the Ribeira Sacra is a privileged spot for the lovers of this activity. There are very interesting routes:

  • River Sil Canyon – Monastery of Santa Cristina
  • Chestnut and hazel fields route
  • River Mao Canyon Route.

There is a walking route homologated PR-G 98, Sil Canyon – Monastery of Santa Cristina de Ribas de Sil. It´s a circular route of 18 km with beginning and ending in Parada de Sil’s main square. It passes in the most part for old ways to crop vineyards. In the path you can see mills or old constructions used as ovens or sequeiros (to dry hazelnuts), as well as the Monastery of Santa Cristina de Ribas de Sil.

You could also go to Entrambosrios, where you can visit the mills and the ancient chestnut.

The Ribeira Sacra is home of the well-known Ribeira Sacra’s wines. We recommend you to visit some wine cellars as Valcar, Leiravella or Ronsel do Sil. Mao River´s beach. Rabacallos pier in Sil River, especially indicated for canoeing and other water sports.

The New York Times

The world of wine has changed greatly in the last 25 years. Few places illustrate these changes better than our next subject, the red wines of Ribeira Sacra, in Galicia in northwestern Spain.
It’s an ancient wine region, relying on visually stunning, terraced vineyards carved into the steep slopes rising from a network of rivers by the Romans, 2,000 years ago. Yet it’s strikingly modern: Many of the vineyards, which had been abandoned by the middle of the 20th century, have been reclaimed and rejuvenated, and the region’s wine business has grown rapidly.
