Within the municipal district, the small village of Pazos de Arenteiro, declared a Historic-Artistic Site, is well worth a visit.

Boborás Municipality is about 40 km from the city of Ourense. A visit to the village of Pazos de Arenteiro is a must. This is a small village with several “pazos” (typical Galician grand houses and mansions). A walk around its cobbled streets is a journey into the past.

Also of note is the Festivity of As Mudacións, held in May. During this festivity, two sets of dancers, wearing white skirts and hats with ribbons and flowers, carry the Virgin in procession from Santa María de Xuvencos Church to Boborás. On their way, they perform traditional dances, such as “muñeiras”, “trenzadas” and “paleadas”.
