Nature reserves

With respect to the nature reserves in this geodestination – which is in itself nature in its purest state – it should be noted that Ancares-Courel is considered to be a Site of Community Importance in the Natura 2000 network, both for its geological interest as well as due to it being considered Galicia's large green reserve (Os Ancares is also a Special Protection Area for Birds and National Hunting Reserve as well as a Special Protection Area for the Brown Bear).

With respect to the nature reserves in this geodestination – which is in itself nature in its purest state – it should be noted that Ancares-Courel is considered to be a Site of Community Importance in the Natura 2000 network, both for its geological interest as well as due to it being considered Galicia's large green reserve (Os Ancares is also a Special Protection Area for Birds and National Hunting Reserve as well as a Special Protection Area for the Brown Bear). Included in this network of nature reserves are several areas such as the Carballido and A Marronda Forests, the area of Negueira with rugged terrain and beautiful contrasts of nature and the beginnings of the River Cabe. Not to mention the Cruzul-Agüeira area formed by forests of holm oak, oak, and chestnut trees, depending on the altitude.

There are two Biosphere Reserves in this geodestination. It includes all of the Os Ancares Reserve and the mountains of Navia, Cervantes and Becerreá, and four of its municipalities belong to the Río Eo, Oscos and Terras de Burón Reserve.

The spectacular mountainous nature of the Ancares-Courel geodestination is part of the hidden treasures Galicia is hiding to be discovered by curious travellers. No one better than the poet Uxío Novoneyra to draw with words that which is his homeland:

Courel dos tesos cumes que ollan de lonxe!
Eiquí síntese ben o pouco que é un home...

 
"Courel of the high peaks that look on from afar!
Here how little a man is can be clearly felt...
"
