The Valley of Gallo River was an important settlement since olden days. Archaeological remains such as “castors”(Celtic fortifications), petroglyphs, or “mámoas” (burials) are meaningful signs of the Prehistory of Cuntis.
• Cequeril petroglyphs consist of several stones with carvings. The most important groups are those of “Outeiro dos Campiños” and, next to it, “Laxe dos Homes”.
• There is a petroglyph in the industrial area of A Ran, called the same. It is the only in the city town with deer carvings. It is advisable visiting it when the sun shines laterally on the stones, due to its fragility.
• “Mámoas de Mesego” are from 3000 b.C. There are also “mamoas” called “petoutos dos mouros” behind the school of Troans.
• “Castro de Laxos” is a village of the prehistoric Galicia. In the archaeological surveys done in the summer of 1993, several circular houses and structures were found, which show their occupation until the change of age.
• We have to point out the “Castro de Castrolandín”. It is a fortified village of the Stone Age, which, thanks to the work of Fundación Terra Termarum, has become in a site to visit, valuable as cultural and historic resource.
There are several “castros”, almost a fortnight, in the boundaries of Cuntis
In this beautiful place there are religious buildings archaeologically interesting, some of them already built in the Middle Age, between XII and XIV centuries.
• The transept of the San Breixo de Arcos de Furcos church (XVI) is the oldest in the council. In this church, there are a pilgrim, a baptismal font (out), and a Gothic canopy in the church entrance.
• The Santa María de Cuntis church was built with the stones of an old Romanesque temple. There are two sculptures, a Christ and San Sebastian, done by Ferreiro, one of the most famous authors in the Galician sculpture of the XVIII century. There are also sculptures by Francisco Asorey.
• Convento de San Bieito de Pereira church was built in the XIX century. In the atrium, it has a transept with figures carved by the old town stonemasons representing the Sacred Family. There is a surprising image of the Virgin crossed by a sword in the top of the transept.
• The transept of the cemetery of Santa Maria de Cuntis was located in the centre of the town but it was moved to the cemetery about the middle of the XX century. It has a Christ of the Agony in the front and a Virgin Mary on the back.
• The transept of Estacas church is a XVII century building, one of the oldest of Cuntis along with that of Arcos de Furcos. Moreover, one of the ways to the church is flanked by a Via Crucis.
There are “pazos” (typical Galician manor house), casonas, rectories and village – hostel houses of this period. They show the sumptuousness and lordship of some noble families of the region.
• The Hospitalillo is a big house, once owned by a rich family of the place. Its facade shows all the beauty of the stone carved by the good stonemason of this region. Nowadays it is the Casa de la Cultura “Roberto Blanco Torres”.
• The Horreo (grain store) of the Estacas rectory has seven “claros” (capacity) and it is the biggest of the council. Its building on a slope gives more grandiosity to the people who visit it.
• The Horreos in Cequeril are characterized by a more profuse architecture and are best finished, as they are in a region good in stonemasons
• The Stonemason’s Monument is the most recent work in Cuntis along with the bust of Roberto Blanco Torres. It is a tribute to the stonemasons of the region.
• The Sagrado Corazón de Jesús, built in the Maráns Park is a splendid sculpture. The monument, by Francisco Asorey, was inaugurated in 1945 as a recovery project of the Maráns mountain. The image seats on a granite stand. It is a real viewpoint where you can see the village of Cuntis. The park also has stone tables and a big grove.
