- Fonsagrada (Lugo)
Dive into this amazing 360 degree photo of MONTOUTO and look for its resources in any direction.
Montouto is much more than a lookout point. Apart from its stunning views of the area of A Fonsagrada, it is the site of an important part of the cultural heritage of the Way of Saint James.
The Real Hospital de Montouto was founded here in the fourteenth century with additional buildings added up until the end of the seventeenth century. It continued as a hostel for pilgrims completing the arduous Camino Primitivo (Primitive Way) to Santiago de Compostela until the early twentieth century. Today one building remains standing and the ruins of others can still be seen.
Near to the old hostel there is a recently built chapel with an ancient pedigree, the site of a traditional romería (pilgrimage). Finally, it is also the site of the Dolmen de Montouto, part of a megalithic necropolis.
