Although there are many places of great importance in Monforte de Lemos, the first thing we notice when we arrive in this town is the Torre del Homenaje (Homage Tower). This building is located at the highest point of Monforte and from it you have one of the best panoramic views of the city.
The Torre Homenaje is a medieval building that forms part of the city's fortress. It is a tower built between the 13th and 15th centuries that stands out for being 30 metres high and for its great walls of up to 3 metres thick.
Nowadays, anyone who wishes can visit the keep of Monforte de Lemos. Inside there is a museum with an exhibition of the history of the tower and the kingdoms that inhabited that place in the past, in which we can find paintings and various elements of the time.
Although more and more people are visiting this city in the province of Lugo, thanks to the Camino de Invierno the influx of pilgrims is increasing. Each year that passes this pilgrimage route are more people who travel the different stages of this pilgrimage route, which allows us to visit the Ribeira Sacra, one of the most emblematic places of Galicia.
