Cambados (Pontedra) Galicia. Do not miss it and visit Cambados, it is worth it. Billed as the birthplace of Alvariño its beauty will surprise you, especially at low tide. I went this summer and the atmosphere was awesome. I encourage walking and going to try the Albariño or Ribeiro sitting on any seafront terrace.

Ex-convent of San Francisco

The church of San Francisco was, in the past, a Franciscan convent, of which scarcely any remains. Today the church is used as the Cambados parish church. It's a simple baroque church that is fairly central and easy to find, you must climb stairs to access it. What stood out most for me was the large number of crosses, both in front and in the kind of venue where you are located. To the right of the church is a small gate that was formerly entered by monks but I could not access it. The interior is very nice and it has two chapels, what I liked best was an image of the Virgin. The back of the church is surrounded by trees and grass, I am always fascinated by churches that are surrounded by nature. On the left side stands a tower (the church bell tower), it is pretty tiny. I liked the visit, it's not spectacular but the church has its charm.

Church of St. Benedict

This lovely church is in the historic area of ​​Cambados, next to the square of Fefiñans. Its structure is simple but also has charm. The most striking are 2 towers that stand on both sides of the main facade and two towers which are not very large. Inside I visited only once and there are at grave Gonzalo de Valladares and his wife. I recommend a visit.

The Pazo de Ulloa, also known as the Os Pazos Casona is in the top of Cambados, going to the chapel of Mount Da Pastora and the ruins of Santa Marina.

It's traditional Galician, made of rock and with thick walls, with a garden. In the main entrance is the coat of arms Acevedo, Ulloa, the Fonseca and Castro.

Next to an old tree, I think it was an oak, sits the lookout on Mount A Pastora, which stands on a rock and on this a stone cross. It can be highlighted for its amazing views of the Ria de Arosa.

This weekend I was in Cambados. Close to the City Council is Plaza Ramón Cabanillas, the illustrious Galician writer who was born in this beautiful town, and where the Monumento del Poeta da Raza is, with a barrel of albariño wine in one hand and a bunch of grapes in the other (a symbol of the famous vineyards of the region of Salnés). This albariñense culture has its peak in the annual celebration during the first weekend of August (the celebration of the Feast of Albariño), which attracts many visitors/tourists, you can taste different Albariño wines that enter the competition as well as its cuisine. This fiesta is declared of National Tourist Interest since it is always opened by political or cultural personalities.
