Public Park. Drinking fountain. Baroque church of San Juan Bautista, constructed in XVIII. During the feudal period, the nobles demanded a toll payment (a tax for passing through) to all those travellers wishing to enter Galicia. It is believed that the name of the village derives from this toll, abolished in the early XVIII century by Alfonso VI.
