Sil Canyon Heritage Sites
This spot is special not only because of its views and wines, but also owing to its rich historical and artistic heritage. Monasteries, churches, chapels, tombs carved into the rocks... These are just some examples of the history on offer when visiting the Sil Canyon.
The Sil Canyon boasts a wealth of heritage sites in the form of religious buildings. The first hermit monks to settle here led a solitary life, based around meditation and prayer. Over time, they began to form small communities which resulted in the establishment of the first monasteries, which later gave rise to the grand buildings that we can admire today.
