Galicia is one of the most magical autonomous communities of the Iberian Peninsula and the cradle of Santiago de Compostela, capital and one of the most attractive destinations for those who make the pilgrimage through the different routes of the Camino de Santiago. But the Galician region not only has a great number of legends, historical culture and a rich gastronomy of national and tourist interest, but also has fascinating places worth visiting.
The Cueva del Rei Cintolo is one of these incredible corners that can be found in Galicia. Although it may go completely unnoticed at first glance, the reality is that it has an important historical interest. Located in the parish of Argomoso, in the municipality of Mondoñedo, Lugo, it is the largest cave in Galicia, where you can see interesting formations of stalactites and stalagmites.
The Cueva del Rei Cintolo is composed of three-story galleries, forming a total of about 6 kilometers in length. Thanks to the different excavations carried out, different materials from the Middle Ages were discovered, so it is worth mentioning that this place is classified as a Paleolithic type site. Given its antiquity, there are many stories and legends surrounding the cave, some of which have been preserved for many years and have been compiled in written form.
