* La Alameda: This public park is beautiful at sundown, when you can see the sun setting over the sea. It contains a monument to the region's seafarers. There is a small zoo there.
* The farmers' market by the river: stop and get some "queixo galego" (local cheese)and "pan galego" (traditional local bread).
* Two picturesque bridges: The Ponte do Burgo and the Roman bridge of Pontesampaio. The latter is where French invaders were stopped in their efforts to conquer Galicia. Local legend says a woman noticed the French troops advancing, and, after sounding the alarm, faced them off wielding only a sickle until the Spanish army arrived to defeat the French.
