Ribeira Sacra - Cañones del Sil Private Day Tour from Santiago de Compostela
The grand interior of Galicia. The Ribeira Sacra, meaning ‘holy river bank’, is used to refer to the lands that border the confluence of the rivers Sil and Miño, and includes parts of the provinces of both Ourense and Lugo. The area boasts some of the most spectacular gorge scenery in Europe. Terraces of vines perch precariously on improbably steep slopes and a multitude of medieval monasteries, churches and chapels overlook the rivers or nestle in gentler terrain nearby.
This relaxing Day Tour of the stunning Ribeira Sacra focuses on wine from the Sil Canyons, with a visit of one of the most well known bodegas Adega Algueira and lunch in their restaurant. The highlights of the day will also be the catamaran cruise in the canyon and a stunning walk in the vinyards. We can also add visits of historical Monasteries and another winery on request.
