A country manor rented on a room by room basis situated in the Ribera Sacra area of the Terras de Trives region, and close to the Montaña de Manzaneda ski resort. It is a typical 18th century stone-built house, with a surface area of 800 m². It was renovated and opened to the public in 1989 and since then has been well maintained. We try not to function as a hotel usually does, but to maintain the character of a home.

Useful tourist information
Our house is situated en the town centre of A Proba de Trives (its Galician name, or Puebla de Trives in Castilian Spanish), a small mountain town with some 1,500 inhabitants, in the north of the province of Orense, 69 km from the provincial capital and 77 km from the city of Ponferrada. 16 km from Montaña Manzaneda ski resort. On the border between the provinces of Ourense and Lugo, the banks of the Sil River came to be called "sacred" for the abundance of monasteries and religious places in the area. The route is characterised by varied, beautiful, rugged landscapes. The route starts in the village of Os Peares, at the confluence of the Rivers Miño, Sil and Búbal, and continues towards Penalba to arrive at Nogueira de Ramuín, where the Romanesque Church of San Martiño can be seen (from the 12th century but with later modifications). At Las Mamoas de Moura there are seven dolmen tombs, built around 3000 BC. The Santo Estevo de Ribas do Sil Monastery is the largest and best conserved in the Ribeira Sacra area. The building has three cloisters. The oldest, that of the Bishops, is formed by two sections from the 12th century and another from the 16th century. There is also the Grand cloister, built between the 16th and 17th centuries and, finally, a simple cloister from the 16th century. The church was built in the 16th and 17th centuries, with a basilica layout of three naves and three apses, the side apses being higher than the central one. The façade was rebuilt in the 18th century. The route to Parada do Sil is accompanied by beautiful panoramic views. Access is via a track to the Santa Cristina de Ribas do Sil Monastery, like the Santo Estevo Monastery, occupied by Benedictine monks until 1835. Its 12th/13th century Romanesque church already shows Gothic elements. From the Os Torgas and Balcones de Madrid viewpoints you can see the deep Sil River Canyon in all its beauty. The route continues towards Teixeira, with the remains of its medieval castle up above. Set back from the bank of the Sil River is the San Paio de Abeleda Monastery. It dates from the 12th century and has an attractive Romanesque façade. In Castro Caldelas, a castle was built on the site of a previous old fort. It was built in the 12th century, with several subsequent reforms. There is now a museum in the building.
