Also, in Verín the Casa de los Acevedo, the church of Santa Maria la Mayor, the church of La Merced and the convent of Mercedario. The neighbourhood of San Lázaro and the albergue (Casa do Escudo). The bridge over the river Támega and the fragments that remain from the ancient wall.
Mineral waters The springs of Sousas Cabreiroá, Sousas, Fontenova….are all names of well known springs that visitors are likely to have heard of. The ground beneath Verín holds treasured springs of fresh and healthy water, which, in some cases, such as those mentioned above, have been commercialised.
The sites of the springs and the bottling plants are open to visitors.
Verín is famed for its production of Monterrei wine, one of the five varieties of Galician wine. This variety of wine has been awarded and classified as a product worthy of Designation of Origin.
