: Several data of the Monastery give
an idea about the importance and power that this architectural treasure
once concentrated. Thus, in the year 1773 its hospice accommodated up
to 8,000 pilgrims that were in the way to Compostela, and about 3,000
travellers; having 80 monks who gave daily tithe to about 600 people using up to 5,000 ferrados (Galician
measure which makes about the fourth part of a bushel) of wheat and
rye. Tourists and neighbours can currently visit it attended by a friar
who meets them at the lodge. In its surroundings, the artificial lake that the river Tambre makes was declared space of ornithological natural interest. With regard to civil architecture, the pazo of Gado and the pazo of Golmar in Roade stand out. Whilst in the religious sphere, the churches of Cardelle, with Romanesque apse, and A Cidadela, which dates from the end of the XII century, are interesting. Remains of a Roman camp are also preserved in this parish, althoug it is still in excavation stage.
