Evidence of its reputation as one of the most beautiful towns in Galicia is that it was declared a Historical-Artistic Area (decree of 29 May 1970).

The Pozo do Cachon is a magnificent example of industrial engineering dating from the second decade of the 19th century, one of Europe’s most important tide mills. It was built by order of Ignacio Perez Bazarra, owing to increased cultivation of corn and the decrease in river flow in the area during the summer.
Nowadays it serves as a Civic and Cultural Centre, with a Mills of the Death Coast Visitors Centre, and an attached building for temporary exhibitions, where you can see two Guild stones and a bronze-age cist tomb, dated between 1800 and 800 BC.
For schools, we offer a guided tour to this site of great ethnographic, artistic and cultural interest.
