- Ulla River
One of Galicia’s most important rivers, the Ulla, is very close to our accommodation, being the region’s main scenic attraction. Following its course, within a radius of just a few kilometres, you can discover many of its outstanding features; such as the O Xirimbao suspension bridge or the Roman pesqueiras (weirs) used to catch lamprey, a fish that goes back thousands of years as one of the area’s delicacies. Also worth mentioning are Brañas de Laiño, one of Galicia’s largest and most varied wetlands, and Catoira’s Torres do Oeste, defensive towers that were built in the 12th century to protect Compostela’s treasures from Viking attacks.
- Hills and Viewpoints
Our accommodation is located on the slopes of Monte Santiaguiño, one of the region’s most important natural habitats, not only due to its rich biodiversity but also to its link with the Way of St. James. For centuries it was a pilgrimage site since, according to legend, the stone promontory that is still visible today was where the Apostle James preached. Moreover, this hill is also a wonderful place for trekking or horse riding, as well as for discovering its viewpoints, featuring some of the most impressive views of the area.
