The stunning views of the river Miño, with its width and slow flow, and its green riversides, compete horizontally with the motorway to Vigo on the other side. Following the road we find Ribadavia, with its Jewish quarter (that we should visit for a few hours) and its magnificent and restored castle, in addition to one of the small pre-Romanesque jewels in Galicia: the chapel of San Xes de Francelos, on the outskirts of the village.
