    The artistic heritage of A Pastoriza is noted for its many stone crosses, chapels and churches that make up the rural municipality. The Temple of Breton is considered the cradle of the diocese of Mondoñedo-Ferrol because it was the ancient Britoniensis episcopal until the eighth century. Several authors defend the existence of a British Christian society in this area. It is believed that it was they who founded a Breton bishopric.
