The town has beautiful natural spaces such as the recreational area of O Chanto, on the banks of the rivero Sarria. Lovers of outdoor activities can also go fishing and hunting in several game reserves, or go hiking and horse-riding. Moreover, this is complemented by its delicious cuisine, chief examples of which are Galician stew, octopus, pie, meat on the grill, sausages and cold meats and especially game. As a matter of fact, the Monastery of A Magdalena is one of the most emblematic buildings in Sarria, also known as the Convent of La Merced. In the city`s architectural legacy, arising from the fact that the Pilgrim's Road to Santiago de Compostela passed through these lands, we can find examples of medieval structures for religious, civil and military purposes.
