Ancares - Courel

Highlight... "Pallozas" and forests

  • Pallozas of Piornedo

  • Forest in O Courel

Located at 1,200 metres above sea level, the village of Piornedo, in the midst of the Serra dos Ancares, is one of the ethnographic treasures of this geodestination. The ancient appearance of the fourteen stone pallozas with plant-based roofs takes visitors back to pre-Roman Galicia, revealing to them that which is most authentic of Galicia and the best preserved village of that long-ago time.
Nature also remains intact in these lands. The Devesa da Rogueira is the ecological jewel of the Serra do Courel, with 30 square kilometres of old-growth forest and an impressive diversity of trees. Landscapes such as those of the Avesedo de Donís and the Cabana Vella holly forest in Os Ancares are characterised by their high biodiversity.
