If any municipality in the region is fully identified with the River Arnoia, it is undoubtedly Cartelle. The land is made up of fertile land and farmland, which are combined in harmony with transition forests between the native vegetation and the forest exploitation that distributes the economy among its people.
Cartelle is a place where it is worth getting lost in its innumerable “tracks”, which make you discover, without waiting, a beautiful Marian sanctuary full of devotion, such as As Marabillas; as you can see in the distance the powerful and evocative chivalrous promontory of what remains standing of the fortress of Sande or the family home of the pioneer of filmmaking in Galicia, Carlos Velo, in the very village that gives its name to the municipality.
Place that sounds like a bagpipe: The one that in Galicia and Latin America was played -with “Los Maravillas”, her brothers- by the elegant Auria, the first woman bagpiper of our land.
And that sounds like horse hoofs trotting firmly on the old cart tracks, to later find rest in the O Mundil equestrian complex, a sort of horse sanctuary as well.
