A trip scented by wild scabies...

This rich heritage, which has been handed down through the ages by successive civilisations that occupied this territory, manifests itself not only in terms of archaeological remains (castros, megalithic monuments, stone burial sites), but also in architectural and artistic terms (religious monuments, palacetes, pillories, Roman bridges).
