Description

Discover the unique Ribeira Sacra area along the banks of the Miño and Sil Rivers. Let its centuries-old vineyards and the charms of the Romanesque captivate you. Enjoy a catamaran ride down the Sil River, discover the Monastery of San Pedro de Rocas, and explore the city of Ourense. Depart from Santiago in the morning and with a stop in Ourense so more people can join in. Take a catamaran ride upstream through the canyons of the River Sil. On the boat, taste a typical wine from the area. At the end of the ride, go to one of the viewpoints that surround the Ribeira Sacra to see the immensity of its landscape. Next, stop at the Monastery of San Pedro de Rocas, a unique architectural symbol of the Ribeira Sacra, located in the heart of the region. Then, continue to Ourense, known as the thermal capital of Galicia. Enjoy free time for lunch and visit the historic center. Stroll through its cobbled streets and find out why it is known as the city of bridges before returning to Santiago in the evening. For those staying in Ourense, the tour will end in As Burgas. NOTE: in October we will visit the Monastery of Santo Estevo instead of the Monastery of San Pedro de Rocas.
