Introduction

On this excursion from Santiago de Compostela you will enjoy a full day tour discovering some of the most important places of the  Rias Altas.

The first stop will be Viveiro, in Mariña Lucense, we will walk along its narrow roads that will take us to its convents and churches all slate roofs. We continue to stick to the Cantabrian coast to Estaca de Bares, the northernmost point of the Iberian Peninsula and which is the border between the Atlantic and the Cantabrian, and then arrive at the tiny port of O Barqueiro. One of the obligatory stops in this area is the Bank of Loiba, considered the most beautiful bank in the world, for being located on the cliffs in an environment of incomparable beauty. After passing through the cliffs of the Sierra de la Capelada, we arrive in San Andrés de Teixido, a 12th-century hermitage that hides innumerable legends and says: "If you do not go to San Andrés alive once, you will go dead. "

San Andres (St Andrew) was supposed to have many powers such as curing diseases or protecting cattle and crops. Bottom line, a visit to the village can save your soul and, best of all, you could be reincarnated as a lizard, snake, bird or toad. As a result all animals in the village are never harmed.
