Fragas do Eume & Caaveiro Monastery

On Wednesday, taking advantage of my in-laws visiting from Holland, we decided to spend the afternoon at the Natural Park Fragas do Eume, considered one of the best examples of the Atlantic forest in the entire European continent.

Once there, we enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and walked approximately 7 kilometers to the Caaveiro Monastery, a Benedictine monastery founded in the tenth century. Once on top of the hill,  the peace and quietness you can experience, surrounded by nature and only by trees and mountains is hard to describe. It's a really magical.

To return to the parking lot where we had parked our car I have to admit that we took the bus ... we were really tired to have to walk another 7 miles back ...;-))

To end the night we went to have dinner at the "Rio Cantina Coves" a beautiful house with a carefully restored cuisine based on products from Galicia. The beautiful garden is full of small tables perfect for both quiet drinks or to have dinner on summer nights. 100% recommended.
