Castelo de Sobroso (Mondariz)

The medieval fortress of Sobroso was built on a rocky promontory on the hillside of mount Landín. Its walls have borne witness to a succession of battles, plots and power struggles between noble families, and it has been a place of passage for kings, queens, pilgrims and walkers. Its walls were home to secrets, stories and legends that we can now discover, as its conversion into a museum allows us access to both the castle and its former inhabitants.

Municipal Museum of Ponteareas (Ponteareas)

This museum, situated on the site of the old tanning factory, brings us a step closer to the history of Ponteareas and the surrounding area. Some of the archaeological artefacts found in the Castro de Troña (Ponteareas) are exhibited here, as are some of the Roman bronzes recovered from the Coto de Altamira or Taboexa (As Neves), along with other items from sites in the area. There is also a section devoted to the feast of Corpus Christi and its carpets of flowers, one of the village’s distinguishing features. Finally, a part of the museum is given over to the history of some of the village’s illustrious sons and daughters, who dedicated their lives to political, social or cultural affairs.
