Balcones de Madrid Viewpoint
One of the most spectacular viewpoints in Galicia, and unquestionably the most breathtaking in the Ribeira Sacra.
It is not possible to see Madrid from here but this was the place chosen by local women to watch their husbands as they set out for the capital.
Many were wafer sellers and they went to festivals in Madrid and all over Spain crying their wares. This explains why there is a monument dedicated to a wafer seller in the village.
We recommend a visit at sunset to see how the river's waters appear to stop flowing, as they turn dark blue.
