The beautiful landscapes of the Ribera Sacra
The jewel of the interior region of Galicia is the Ribeira Sacra, since it is an excellent area for viticulture due to the vineyards which are placed on benches on the banks of the rivers of Miño and Sil.
The origins of the name of Ribeira Sacra come from the many monasteries which were built on the banks of the rivers and the amount of oaks that we find in the area. It is a fantastic place to get to know the culture of wine, nature, the cliffs and comprehend the lives of the monks.
