Ribeira Sacra

The Ribeira Sacra could be defined as one of inland Galicia’s best-kept secrets. This area is formed of 21 municipalities in the south of Lugo province and the north of Ourense province, bound together by the rivers Miño, Sil and Cabe.

The Ribeira Sacra offers a great variety of fun and culinary experiences, alongside a wide range of top-quality local products which hold trademarks guaranteeing their origin.

Steep slopes and thick forests attracted monastic communities to the Ribeira Sacra, from the earliest days of Christianity, seeking spiritual retreat and ascetic life. They introduced new growing and winemaking techniques and started a massive expansion of monastic civilisation along the banks of the Sil and Miño rivers, leaving traces to this day.

The vineyards and winemaking were extended under the protection of the monasteries and the Pilgrim’s Way to Santiago, gaining vital importance.

Today, Ribeira Sacra draws thousands of visitor for its heritage, its gastronomy and its superb wines in the search for the taste of a land.
