Centro de Interpretación del Vino y la Lamprea, ARABO

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
• Ground floor: Municipal wine bar - Tasting and sale of wines from 10 wineries in the Rías Baixas D.O region, with videos about these same wines. There is also a small shop with merchandising. (Wine tasting costs 1.50€ per glass). • First floor: You'll find out all about the history of wine since the Egyptians, the ups and downs in cultivation, the influence of the monasteries, Luther's Reformation and the Rías Baixas D.O. Plus, there is also a small summary about cultivation and the phases of the vine. You'll see how, thanks to the tools found in Monte Cabrón, it has been confirmed that the oldest hominid in Galicia was located at this site. Even in Roman times (tradition tells that they took stills to Augustus), we found the mine of la Lagoa with a production of about 600 kg of gold a year. In the Middle Ages, what is today Santa María de Arbo, was then San Petrus de Aravo and belonged to the lands of the Melón monastery. Getting closer to our current times, we find the battle of the people of Arbo waged against the French, and led by Cura del Couto, at the battle of the roman brige of San Juan. This was also where the filming of "The Pride and the Passion" took place, in the mid fifties. • Second floor: Visitors can enjoy a video about the lamprey and the fauna of the Miño river, as well as seeing how the lamprey is fished in Arbo.
