Did you know that... Liñares

 

Where the Way of Saint James passes, it forms part of the municipality of Piedrafita do Cebreiro and is located to the south of O Cebreiro. It is one of the parishes of the municipality that groups the nearby towns of Brimbeira, Celeiró, Conterces and Liñares itself. The place was given by the Crown to the old monastery of O Cebreiro so that the monks could cover their needs with cloth. Although today the parish is part of the archpriesthood of Triacastela, it used to belong to the territorial jurisdiction of Valdefariña with a centre in San Xián do Hospital de Padornelo and over which the house of Valcárcel had a lordship.
