It is a small nucleus of the parish of Ligonde, in the council of Monterroso, to the west of the province of Lugo. In addition to the French Way, the history of Airexe is linked to that of the parish and the council of which it forms part, being lost in time, but the remains of its historical ensemble speak of the Middle Ages.
In Airexe you can admire a medieval semiantropoid sarcophagus, a transept, the rector's house and its Romanesque church of Santiago, totally reformed in neoclassical style, from its Romanesque construction it preserves a triumphal arch over the altar from which an image of Santiago Pilgrim watches expectantly. On the outskirts of the town is the Fonte das Lamas do Redondo.
Airexe celebrates festivities in mid-September in honour of the Santa Cruz, celebrating a pilgrimage.
Historical tradition has it that the church of Airexe belonged to the house, of the Order of Santiago, of San Marcos de León.
On the outside of the Airexe church there is an embedded relief in which you can see a figure among animals that many relate to Daniel.
Airexe can be accessed from Hospital da Cruz on the N-540 between Lugo and Orense, this road reaches Airexe after having passed through Ventas de Narón, A Prebisa and Ligonde. Also by her but in its other sense we arrived at Airexe from the LU-3301 that communicates the localities of O Marco and Monterroso.
