Located at 1,000 m of altitude, where the Os Ancares and O Courel mountain ranges converge.
Ethnographic Complex of O Cebreiro
Declared National Historical Heritage Site, it is one of the few hamlets that preserves its Pre-romanesque "pallozas" (traditional thatched houses), one of which is the "Ethnographic museum of O Cebreiro".
The Village and Sanctuary of O Cebreiro constitute the ethnographic site.
It was declared historical heritage site in 1984 for its noble houses and its vernacular maritime architecture with beautiful streets, wide galleries and balconies with a view to the sea of the Costa da Morte (Coast of Death).
Highlights: the house of Miñones, the Pazo of the Counts of Altamira (15th Century) and the Castle of the Cardinal; also the Church of San Marcos, of Romanesque and "Maritime-Gothic" style, and the Chapel of Pilar, today transformed into the municipal auditorium.
