Ribeira Sacra & Ourense Day Trip

We'll leave Santiago at the selected time and head north to the province of Orense, where our guided tour through the Ribeira Sacra will begin. The name of this region, which means Sacred Riverbank, comes from the Middle Ages when many monasteries were scattered across the slopes of these rugged landscapes.

On arrival, we'll board a catamaran that will take us through the River Sil canyons. For an hour and a half, we'll enjoy the characteristic landscape of the area, and see the enormous walls that rise up to almost 500 meters high. During the cruise, you'll have the opportunity to sample some traditional wine.

Then we'll disembark the catamaran and continue towards some of the viewpoints in the northern part of the Ribeira Sacra. After admiring these views, we'll visit the San Esteban de Ribas de Sil monastery. The monument is currently used as a Parador Nacional de Turismo, known as a luxury hotel located in a historic building,  and still preserves several elements from the original building.

After visiting the monastery, we'll stop in the village of Luintra, where you'll have a free hour for lunch. After lunch, we'll go to the historic centre of Orense, the thermal capital of Galicia. We'll stroll through its cobbled streets and see its famous bridges.

The day will end returning to Santiago 10 hours after the start of the activity.
