In the year 1506, Cardinal Cisneros, regent of the Crown of Castile, spent two nights here, coinciding with the View of Remesal (Sanabria) in which Ferdinand the Catholic met his son-in-law, Philip the Fair, to decide who should be put in charge of the government of Castile.
The main monument of Santigoso is the parish dating from the XVIII century, with a good Baroque altarpiece dated to 1784 and some interesting figurative high reliefs, engraved in the concaves of the triumphal arch: the demon, the mermaid, rosettes, etc. a handful of images representing sin and evil, situated on the boundary between the earthly world (the nave) and the kingdom of God (the presbytery).
