Fraga do Eume

From the hotel -with small displacements- we can approach the beautiful beaches of the Galician Rías Altas. Cabañas, Ares, Chanteiro... offer us their clean waters and soft sandy beaches.

The whole area is a tourist route along roads that are now streets, that go in and out of villages, once neighbours and nowadays already mixed, where behind a small forest there is a beach, anonymous in its name and beautiful in its paradisiacal appearance.


Cedeira, situated on the "Sierra da Capelada", has a generally mountainous appearance. Both the coast and the inland offer a great variety of shapes, which, naturally, makes for a beautiful landscape.
Around the estuary, which changes colour depending on the day and the time of day, the inland shores invite a placidity that contrasts with the firmness of the high cliffs, hard against the unleashed onslaught of the waves. Waves of vibrant foam, made of equal parts light, sprayed water and movement.

The journey to the village is very beautiful. The journey to the town is a beautiful one, passing through all the coastal municipalities with their sea views and traditions. Once in Cedeira, visit San Andrés de Teixido, A Capelada, its beautiful beach, its hiking trails and its restaurants, where you will find the best food and seafood in this part of Galicia.

The beaches in Cedeira are varied: Playa de la Magdalena, Playa de las Cerdeiras, Playa de Miseñora, etc.


Ribadeo is located on the north-eastern border of the province of Lugo (Galicia). The Cantabrian Sea bathes our coasts and the Ribadeo estuary, formed by the mouth of the river Eo, both separates us and unites us with the neighbouring community of Asturias. This particular situation is what has distinguished Ribadeo with the nickname of Porta Norte de Galicia.
On its west side, Ribadeo borders the neighbouring municipality of Barreiros and on the south with that of Trabada. Ribadeo has many tourist, commercial and sporting attractions. The marina of Porcillán (the only one with a Blue Flag in the province of Lugo), the commercial port and the fishing port, together with the Bridge of the Saints, make the Ribadeo estuary an enclave of singular beauty.

The beach of "As Catedrais", with an EEC Blue Flag since 1997, is known for its spectacular rock formations that resemble Gothic flying buttresses. With soft, clear sands and very little gradient, it should be visited at low tide, as it is quickly covered by water when the tide comes in.


It is said that one day Our Lord found St. Andrew very sad, downcast and silent. The Divine Master promptly asked his disciple what were the causes of his affliction.

Saint Andrew told him that his woes were due to the impotence that the sanctuary was not visited in abundance because of its almost inaccessible location, a place so inhospitable and deserted that it was not favourable to the presence of pilgrims. He said that he looked enviously at Compostela, where large crowds of pilgrims came every day to see the tomb of St. James.

Moved by Our Lord and considering the claims of his Apostle to be logical, he said to him: "Go in peace, Andrew, for you must not be less than Saint James. From this day forth.

I promise that no one shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven without first having visited you. And if he did not do so in life, he must come when he is dead". And that is the reason why it is believed that to San Andrés de Teixido goes in death what was not alive, and it is also forbidden to kill any animal in the area, as it is assumed that it is the soul of a deceased person who comes there on pilgrimage before entering the Kingdom of Heaven.
