Arxeriz Ethnographic Museum

Museums and exhibition halls

The museum is located in a 17th-century pazo, or manor house, on an estate measuring 35 hectares. The buildings house a number of exhibition rooms.

The first of these is dedicated to various aspects of the Ribeira Sacra, such as Romanesque architecture, heritage resources, the traditional carnival known as the Entroido Ribeirao, and handicrafts, such as basket making and pottery making.

The second room is dedicated to the traditional wine growing of the region, featuring the materials used for work and for processing the grapes.

The third room is dedicated to the hill fort culture and the general prehistoric culture of the area, based on excavations of the hill fort on the Arxeriz estate.

There are also two rooms dedicated to the riverside culture, where the most notable aspects of life on the banks of the rivers Miño and Sil before the building of the dams are on display, and a large collection of traditional boats.

The Castro hill fort can be visited, as can the geological excavations that were conducted in 2013 on this site, dating back from the 4th to 1st century B.C.

You can also take a walk along a path that crosses the estate among woods with oak trees and other species of mainly deciduous trees.
