It has been a wonderful guided tour. My partner and I were, along with my parents, and we all left delighted. Very entertaining explanations, very well explained and dedicates enough time to each room. They have many curiosities and everything is very bearable. Highly recommended Many thanks to our guide Marta, for leaving us a good memory on our short trip. ;)

Very complete visit. It was done by a natural boy from Galicia and apart from the history he contributed great data and anecdotes that we would not know otherwise. I do not skimp on the time invested and had a lot of deference to people with disabilities and problems, the elderly and children. They also reduced the number of the group to 14 people of which 3 were children so fabulous.
