Village bordering Portugal, its name derives from the Galician verb for sculpting synonymous with watching, looking in the distance. Since ancient times the guerrillas and the armies always carried with them "sculpts" or stalkers that were watchmen on the lookout. The temple of St Eufemia da Esculqueira has a fabulous Baroque altarpiece that is also attributed to the sculptor Xosé Ferreiro. In him they emphasize the image of the patron saint, as well as the heads of four angels located in the base of the columns of Corinthian order that organize the set vertically.
