Day trip to Ribeira Sacra
The Ribeira Sacra, Galicia, between the south of the province of Lugo and the north of the province of Ourense, is a fairytale landscape, crossed by the rivers Miño and Sil on whose shores we will discover the terraces of vineyards where different varieties of grape are cultivated to produce some of the best Galician wines. A humanized landscape, with a unique use of the land that transforms slopes of up to 70% in a succession of small terraces. The enologic resource together with the abundance of heritage, especially Romanesque churches and monasteries, as well as a spectacular landscape, justify the candidacy of the area for World Heritage Site.
We will start our day navigating by catamaran through the spectacular Canyons of the Sil River, a 1 hour and a half ride with a drink included, in which we will contemplate the forests and vineyards so characteristic of this area of the Galician interior, an idyllic start of the trip without doubts.
We will then move to one of the most special viewpoints of the Ribeira Sacra, to admire this incredible landscape from the heights.
The next stop of our trip will be the monumental Monastery of Santo Estevo de Ribas de Sil, of Romanesque and Renaissance style, currently converted into a Parador Hotel. Located in the heart of the Ribeira Sacra, its architecture will undoubtedly surprise us, still preserving the cloister and the exterior ornamentation of the original building.
In the afternoon we will visit the historic center of Ourense, the thermal city. This town, which in the past attracted the Romans for its gold and numerous thermal springs, will amaze you with its unique and carefully preserved artistic heritage.
At the end of the day we will be astonished by the amount of sensations and places that we can find in this area of the Galician interior.
