A Cubela Meander and Village

Natural areas Charming Villages

As the river Sil flows through A Cubela, it forms a spectacular, almost 355° curve, one of the iconic picture postcards of Ribeira Sacra. We recommend that you go to the A Cubela lookout point, which is some 500 metres from the village to see the meander.

The village of A Cubela lies on top of an old Roman gold mine, and its traditional reddish stone houses with slate roofs are well preserved.

Hiking route PRG-180, which is approximately 13 km long and goes through Torbeo and and along the banks of the river Sil, passes through here.
