All this beauty is contained on a giant rock upon which it is built, by the granaries by which it is surrounded, by the houses overlooking the sea, and by several stone crosses typical of Galicia, called Cruceiros, which are on the site. Touring the characteristic streets and squares of this place, you have the possibility of taking a real and authentic journey through time, as well as visiting an area of great ecological value.
