The first destination we will visit will be the capital of the Ribeira. This is known as Monforte de Lemos. Here you can tour the ruins of the Castle of San Vicente and enter the Monastery of San Vicente del Pino. This is one of the most complete sacred buildings that can still be seen in the city and dating from the Middle Ages. Also from this place, you will have one of the best views to take a 360 picture of the city. This is an opportunity that we can’t miss.
Next on the itinerary will be to go to the Mirador de Pena do Castelo. You will have the opportunity to capture the most beautiful images if you like landscape photography. In this sector we will find many wineries that prepare artisanal wine. You can taste the occasional glass until we get on our way back to the town of Castro Caldelas. We’ll go shopping to try to find the best souvenirs and we will even walk through the Castle of the Counts of Lemos.

To end the tour, we’ll wait for the afternoon to fall and enjoy one of the most romantic sunsets in the Canyons of Sil. If you were waiting for this moment to propose, we want to advise you that near there is the Monastery of San Esteban de Ribas de Sil. Thus, with this beautiful scene we will return to Vigo and to modernity.
