In the village of XalleiRa de Rubín we find the chapel of Nosa Señora da Saúde (health), in Gothic style and built in the 18th century, although it is possible on a previous chapel that was built in 1593 by Juan Prego de Montaos. García and Marta Bande point to “The ribbed vault with which the head chapel is covered is supported by tubes and was built in the 16th century, unique in the region.” Inside is the Virgen da Saúde, which of Easter and an image of San Miguel. Although, remarkable enough, the demon that got more popular than the Saint and the Archangel himself. Thus, people know it for “O Demo de Rubín”. The demon in question took all the attention and everyone who approaches, asks for the “demo” and not the Chapel of Health.
It forms an important sanctuary in addition to the Fontain da Santa de Rubín, which descends a staircase, to which “miraculous” properties are attributed. There are still many people who go to the fountain to leave their handkerchiefs and to make advocate from the small Sint-Michiel that is located there. There are not only requests for physical or skin problems, there are also requests for diseases of the soul, including the evil eye.
