Lying between the river and the mountain, with Galicia a stone’s throw away and the sea nearby, INATEL Cerveira truly deserves the favour of the mysterious and distinctive landscapes that surround it. This is in fact an excellent setting for outdoor holidays, surrounded by magnificent landscapes, villages and medieval castles to explore – many trails to discover and observe fauna and flora.
From the east rises a streak of magnificent granite displaying a metal sculpture of a deer (historical symbol of the land), by the sculptor José Rodrigues, one of Cerveira’s illustrious residents and an ever-passionate fan of the town.
A land of legends of enchanted Moors able to ally culture with leisure, the town is also famous for its popular biennial international art exhibits.
