Tourist information:

Its history revolves around the bridge communicating Deza with Trasdeza and beyond, Castela or Santiago, on the maragatería way. The first was made of boards (Pons Tabulata), hence its name, and the second stone, it is still standing with an inscription on a rock next to it which states the year of construction (912). The site invites you to relax and enjoy one of the most beautiful spots on the River Deza as it passes through the  municipality. It forms part of the  Ulla – Deza River System and enjoys the protection of Natura 2000, as it is classified as a Site of Community Importance.

The Vía da Prata passes through Taboada acquiring a special spiritual dimension that is reflected in the combination of the Romanesque church, the unique and beautiful stone cross with fluted tapered pilaster and altar, the recreation area dedicated to pilgrims and two monuments devoted  to St. James and the anonymous pilgrim (Designed by Fco. Alen. Work of the Escola Taller de Silleda). It is part of the Romanesque Route.

In civil architecture Casa de Carballeda stands out with its chapel-oratory in honour of San Roque, owned by the Gil Taboadas from who descends Archbishop Cayetano Gil Taboada.

Also in this parish is the first of the railway stations of the Zamora-Santiago line with a design based on the Baroque constructions so typical of Galician palaces.

At the foot of the Camino, in the hamlet of Ponte and near the river, is the rural guesthouse "A Posta da Prata", occupying a house which was dedicated to changing the carters’ tack.

In terms of cuisine, in the hamlet of Taboada Vella, is one of the most famous bakeries in the council as well as the restaurant "Rabasa."
