Ethnographic Museum

The contents of the MEQ are related, on the one hand, to four typical products of the Geopark: wine, chestnuts, honey and oil; on the other, with four essential materials for the development of life in the environment: stone, iron, wood and fabrics. They also have their space, the field and the cattle, the main room of

the house (el lar), and the endearing unitary school of our villages. All the pieces in the extensive collection, recovered since 2007, come from the Montañas do Courel Geopark, in many cases thanks to neighborhood donations.

Currently the ethnographic collection of our Museum, made up of just over 1000 pieces, is one of the most complete and interesting ethnographic collections in Galicia.

All the contents present in this collection find their synthesis in the recreation of a traditional village in these mountains with the exhibition of the models that were decorated for the Galician animated film O Apóstolo, by “Artefacto Producciones”; where stone, wood, iron, etc., find their place to facilitate the life of the people of this hard but grateful land.
