Climbing up to the viewpoint of Farelo Hill


This viewpoint is located in the central part of Galicia, at the peak of Farelo Hill. Being the highest point in the region, it allows to contemplate the four Galician provinces partially, offering a spectacular 360º panoramic view.

Pendellos of Agolada


In the village of Agolada stands a market from the late 18th century. It consists of traditional stone houses called pendellos that were used by merchants on fair days. The Feira de Artesanía de Galicia (Galician Crafts market) takes place here — you cannot miss it!

Galo de curral from Vila de Cruces


If you visit the lands of Deza and, of course, the municipality of Vila de Cruces, you have to try its famous galo de curral or free-range chicken, an animal raised outdoors and fed with cereals. This dish can be paired with a glass of wine of the Designation of Origin Rías Baixas, sub-area of Ribeira do Ulla.

The Monastery of San Salvador de Camanzo


This monastery was founded by the counts of Deza in the first half of the 10th century, although its preserved remains date from the second half of the 12th century. In the central apse, there are some interesting 16th century frescos, which were found some years ago, after moving away a Baroque altarpiece that was hiding them.

Sobreirais of O Arnego


Finish your day trip breathing fresh air and relax yourself accompanied by the murmur of water in a place of natural interest. This ecosystem, included in the Natura 2000 network, stands out due to its great ecological value. Here, you can enjoy a walk among hundred-year-old cork oaks.
