Long Description:
Praza do Ferro is centered by a beautiful fountain that decorated, before the Confiscation, the courtyard of the Santo Estevo de Ribas de Sil mostery (today a national parador). In the 19th century it was moved to this place. In it we find mermaids, caryatids and, as we ascend, Eros with two eagles on his head.
Centered by a baroque fountain, on one of its sides stands the Casa de los Boán (17th century). Formerly a market for farm tools, hardware and pots was installed here.
