VISIT MONFORTE DE LEMOS
Located in the province of Lugo, it is the capital of Ribeira Sacra. Although its history dates back to the Paleolithic era with the existence of a Celtic fort in the city, it was not until the 16th and 17th centuries that it lived its maximum splendor with the arrival of the railway and as the capital of the County of Lemos.
A total of 20 city councils constitutes this fashionable space in Galicia, of which 12 are part of the province of Lugo and eight belong to the province of Ourense.
The entire Ribeira Sacra is articulated by the passage of the two main Galician river courses, the Río Miño and the Río Sil. Rivers whose hydrographic basins bathe meadows, wetlands, peatlands, oak groves and vineyards.
The terraces with the vineyards from Roman times, the cliffs that form the Sil and Miño canyons, the viewpoints, the more than 15 monasteries, the 203 Romanesque churches, the 60 rectories, crossroads, breastplates, castles, country houses, museums, the dozens of cellars of DO wines Ribeira Sacra, the ancient artisan ceramics Niñodaguía and Gundivós, local gastronomy, river cruises, active tourism activities... have been key to fighting for the declaration of World Heritage Site.
