On any tour of these lands a visit to the parish church is a must. It is dedicated to the Apostle Santiago and Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, the virgin affectionately known as “la extremeña”.
Following the trail around the parish, the remains of a fort settlement or castro can be seen in Frouxeira, where the double defensive wall still stands. From the more recent past is the country house Pazo of Penas-Corveiras, located in the village of the same name. It is the former residence of Count Pallares and is currently privately owned and not open to visitors.
Noche (San Martiño)
The patron saint of these lands is San Martiño, to whom this parish church is dedicated. This temple is architecturally modern but a silver crucifix from the end of the XVII century is kept in its quarters.
Continuing with the religious theme, you can visit the church of San Cibrán without having to go beyond the boundaries of the parish.
Oleiros (San Mamede)
Boasting prehistoric and roman remains, there are diverse documents from the Middle Ages referring to the town of San Mammes de Ollariis and the hunting reserve Oleiros.
The cultural heritage of these lands is represented by the parish church dedicated to San Mamede, dating back to the XVII century, where a baroque altarpiece can be found and various neoclassical artefacts.
Nete (San Cosme)
The route through Nete continues with a visit to the fort settlement which has the same name as the parish, at Castro. Situated on a hill, the fortification has three walls, of which only the north wall remains
The visit to the parish ends at Legua Dereita, an area where there are numerous megalithic tombs.
Xoibán (San Salvador)
A visit to the parish of Xoibán provides an opportunity to walk around the chapels of Rúa and San Paio as well as the parish church, which has a cross built in 1900 in its vestibule. The head of the cross is decorated with winged angel heads and the shaft with features from the Passion.
Casa de Montenegro represents the stately aspects of the area.
