What to see Ribadeo's most representative building is known as La Torre dos Moreno, a truly spectacular Modernist construction. But be sure to go sightseeing around the old quarter to discover other star attractions, such as Pazo de Ibáñez manor house (now the Town Hall) or the Santa Clara Covent. You can also enjoy some of the many festival, fairs and markets that are held here on a regular basis. From its port, known as Porcillán, you can take a pleasant stroll to Illa Pancha lighthouse, passing by the ruins of San Damián castle, which is just a few metres from a viewpoint called O Cargadoiro. And, of course, take some time out to visit the nearby beach of As Catedrais, so-named because of its incredible rock formations. They form arches that rise out of the sand, creating the impression of huge natural cathedrals. The landscapes are simply stunning. Ribadeo also has other beaches: As Illas, Esteiro, Os Castros… Gastronomy You have to try the fabulous seafood caught locally in the estuary, such as cockles, clams and oysters. For those with a sweet tooth, we recommend the delicious treats made by the nuns at nearby Santa Clara Convent. Active tourism Ribadeo Marina is located in Porcillán. There you can get both environmental and tourist information. The Sailing Club offers activities such as sailing, windsurfing, diving, angling... You can also explore and go hiking in the Río Eo, Osco y Terras de Burón Biosphere Reserve.
