Center of ethnographic interest of Congostro

Núcleo de interés etnográfico de Congostro

The beautiful village of Congostro is located very close to the capital of the municipality of Rairiz de Veiga. As part of the Biosphere Reserve of the “Area de Allariz”, it presents a large ethnographic set, with one of the best examples of popular Galician architecture, forming a true open-air museum.

Its beautifully restored buildings are magnificent examples of ethnographic heritage. So we can admire from mills, ovens, crosses or farms with relevant granaries that resemble those of Lindoso or Soajo. Congostro thus keeps alive the traditional characteristics of the border villages: narrow streets and houses connected to their farms.

We have the highest concentration of granaries in Aira da Moa, in the center of the village. At the same time, the old rectory stands out, now converted into rural accommodation. It has a rectangular main building and a wooden covered balcony, standing out from the rest.

The village also has a small interpretation center that houses an exhibition on the history and ethnography of the place, as well as a didactic sample of the Via Nova Romana.
