A hidden gem in the woods: Another architectural wonder of the late Romanesque. The entry fees for this site are about 1.5 euros. This is a rundown monastery has exceptional interiors. The monastery is over 1000 years old and didn't need a guide to walk us through this place. All through the site is a must visit, it needs to be conserved well.

Outstanding Views : Well worth a visit. For a small fee you can go see the replica of Pinta vessel used to cross the Atlantic at the time of Columbus. You really fell the vessel is small for such a journey. Respect for the Sailors that managed and dared the journey.
La Pinta was the fastest of the three ships used by Christopher Columbus in his first transatlan...
PEACEFUL AND BEAUTIFUL GARDEN: Its a best visiting place for everyone because its absolutely beautiful. Forget the whole versailles comparison. It's not that, but in its own right it is lovely and WAY less people then Versailles. The four of us were the only people there wandering around the gardens and grottos and ponds and pergolas. Take a picnic.
Time Well Spent : Well worth the entrance fee. There's a nice audio route which takes you through it including the cloisters, the Viewpoint and Tower. The Cathedral dates back to Roman times and has fortifications being centrally located in the Old Town of the hilltop fortified city of Tui. A must for pilgrims doing the Portuguese Way.

Highly Recommended : Despite being very modest rooms and limited services in place is very nice, elegant grand building construction and very quiet surroundings. It houses a granary that is unique for its size. If you are in Spain, then you must visit this place.
A must-visit for art enthusiasts: The museum is comprised of several buildings; however, the sixth building makes the most exciting part of the visit.
The design of its building is a beautiful piece of architecture. It The numerous archaeological remains, captivating works of the Galician and the permanent exhibition on Castelao make this a must-visit museum.
Great Place : It is a basilica made by the dreamers guild of Pontevedra. A spectacular building with an image of the Cristo del Buen Viaje at the entrance to which the drivers come to ask to protect them on the road. Recommended.
A fascinating tour into the history: This manor house is probably not the best looking from the exteriors but, we loved it inside. The guide was kind enough to tell us the history of the building, the story behind the construction and visit the wineries there. A great tour of the hidden gem indeed!
