It was never easier to get lost in the Ribeira Sacra
In the Ribeira Sacra area there are many magical places: churches, monasteries, stone crosses, viewpoints, trails, castles and fortifications. Many of them are in places so remote that it is not always easy to find them. Therefore, at A Casa da Eira, we have worked out a geolocation system under the name “Lost in the Ribeira Sacra.”
To always reach your destination in the Ribeira Sacra and only get lost with an eye on the horizon, lost in the past in a remote village, lost in the thousand and one details of its Romanesque art, in one word get completely lost in any sense except on the road. This is the pack “Lost in the Ribeira Sacra ” by A Casa da Eira.
And how does it work? We travelled around the Ribeira Sacra to take the geographic coordinates of the best places. We converted them to the most common formats compatible with all types of GPS and smartphones. Before your arrival you receive by e-mail a file with the points of interest (POIs) tailored to your navigation system (Garmin, TomTom, Ozi, etc.) These just have to be transfered to the GPS by USB cable. If, instead of GPS, you use a smartphone with Internet access, we give you a link to a custom map with instructions for viewing it on your phone's browser changing it into a powerful GPS.
Upon arrival at A Casa da Eira we hand out our guide of Romanesque routes in the Ribeira Sacra with information of interest to all major attractions, opening hours, general map and access facilities. There are two guides to choose “Route of the Romanesque art in the Ribeira Sacra of Ourense” and “Route of the Romanesque art in the Ribeira Sacra art of Lugo.” There is also a PDF and iBook version of the guides (formats for other e-readers upon request).
How much does it cost? The pack Lost in the Ribeira Sacra is included in the price of your stay during low season as long as it covers a minimum of two nights at the B&B or rural apartments A Casa da Eira and includes file with GPS custom points of interest (area Lugo or Ourense) and our Romanesque art guide to the Ribeira Sacra.
