Cuntis has a small, well-preserved historic quarter and its surroundings are rich in natural, archaeological and monumental heritage. The area, which was known in Roman times as the «Land of Thermal Waters», was later a place of passage for pilgrims who, from the north of Portugal and from the ports in the south of Galicia, walked towards Compostela following the old Roman roads. Near Cuntis, 7 km away, the village of Caldas de Reis is the penultimate stage for pilgrims travelling along the Portuguese Way to Santiago de Compostela, a World Heritage Site.
Cuntis is the ideal place to relax after daily visits and activities, away from the hustle and bustle of any other tourist city. What better end to the day than to do what the locals do, and enjoy a chat in the village bar at sunset. Also, the climate of Cuntis is very mild, with pleasant average summer temperatures of 24º C.
