The Ribeira Sacra and the canyons of the Sil are one of the treasures of Galicia. The Ribeira Sacra is an area that includes the shores of the rivers Miño, Sil and Cabe and receives this name due to the profusion of different hermit settlements promoted by
the Benedictine order. These date from the 10th and 12th centuries. These places were built in deserted spaces of people and foreign to the rhythm of life in the cities.
