This small town of barely 70 inhabitants is the first obligatory stop when we go beyond the cathedral of Santiago. As the first attraction of the road to Finisterre, the beginning could not be better, because this small village hides nature, history, art and one of the best views of the area.
Built around a magnificent bridge of Roman origin over the river Tambre, this magnificent rural village is surrounded by a natural environment difficult to match, between the flow of the river and the green of the Galician forests that surround the whole complex.
Legend has it that the disciples of the apostle St. James the Greater, fleeing from the Romans, crossed this magnificent bridge. According to the story, the bridge collapsed just after Moses’ waters closed, to let his pursuers fall into the river.
