It is located to the west of Palas de Rei and belongs to its council. But before arriving at this small village of Casanova, and nothing more to cross the river Pambre, the route jacobea of the French Way passes by Ponte Campaña, both villages belong to the parish of San Xoán de Mato. From the period of greatest rise of the primitive pilgrimages only remain on the bridge Campaign its solid granite pillars. It is also linked to history by significant military incursions. Casanova is the last inhabited place of Lugo in the Way.
From Ponte Campaña on the way to Casanova the visitor can take a beautiful walk between spectacular corridoiras that are open in the mother rock itself. In an idyllic corner and surrounded by oaks, Casanova exhibits its group of rural, agricultural and cattle houses, and a beautiful cruise.
The chronicles say that the Count of Lemos, who died in the battle of Porto Bois, took with him to the tomb a famous phrase "all loyalty to Spain".
The nearby enclave of Puerto de Bueyes, Porto de Bois, was the scene of the battle between Enrique de Trástamara and the Count of Lemos, Fernán Ruiz de Castro, who was a supporter of Pedro I El Cruel and in which the balance of fortune tipped in favor of the troops of Trástamara.
To get to Casanova and Ponte Campaña we have to follow the road N-547, more specifically in the section that joins Palas de Rei and Melide we will find the detour that takes us to both localities.
