Sobrado dos Monxes

The monastic origin of Sobrado dos Monxes is the reason why it’s a bit far away from the major roads. But once in this small town you’ll discover a magic countryside that you can’t miss.

Amongst it’s monuments, the monastery is remarkable, a real work of art of the Galician Baroque. Don’t miss also the Campamento da Cidadella, an ancient Roman camp strategically placed here to control the path to Lugo. On the other hand, talking about nature, we have to visit the Lagoa de Sobrado, it’s lake, built by the monks between 1500 and 1530. Today it’s a good example of an ecosystem of the area.
