The Monastery of of Santa Cristina Ribas del Sil is a jewel of Romanesque Gallego amidst nature
It can not know the exact date that dates its first construction, although there are reliable testimony that already existed in pre-Romanesque period.
It seems that this monastery was one of the most important in the Ribera Sacra, given the large number of roads that converge on it.
From the architectural point of view, is invaluable, because it represents the period of maximum splendor of Galician Romanesque. The architectural ensemble we can distinguish two parts: the church and the monasteriales dependencies.
But the most striking thing about this monastery is its perfect communion with nature that surrounds it, the chestnut trees, the river and continuous greenery in the area make this a very unique corner of the Ribera Sacra. An invitation to peace and reflection.
