This is a land located in the northwest in the map of Spain, and of notable orography but not of impossibly high mountains, which means that you will find much life in them. It is one of Galicia's richest provinces in terms of its nature, conserving in its area many natural reserves such as Allariz, a Protected Biosphere, which make of it an ideal place for rural tourism in Orense.
Thanks to its oceanic climate, the temperatures here are mild during most of the year, and so are the levels of rain, and Galician the regional language spoken here.
You will find here lots of natural reserves in each corner of it territory, embraced by the banks of the river Miño and its many neighbouring, smaller rivers. You will be able to walk through several mountain paths crossing the area of Cañones del Sil, and with it the vineyards that provide this region with wines of international reputation and excellent quality. Hiking in the natural reserve of Sierra de Enciña das Lastra, or in the area of Soto de Rozabales is a must if you come here, as it also is finishing your expedition with some wine and delicious Pote.
Apart from the cultural heritage latent in each town and village of this province such as the case of Ribadavia, one of the most popular ones, or the capital where you can visit its ancient Roman bridge, or its monumental cathedral, built in a medley of architectural styles such as Gothic, Renaissance and Neoclassical.
