Macizo Central

In Ourense – between the Chandrexa de Queixa and the Portas reservoirs – the Macizo Central occupies more than 46,000 barely populated mountainous hectares. It is the habitat of the wolf, the boar, the deer... And of botanical surprises such as one-of-a-kind forests of birch and holly.

The only ski resort in Galicia –  Cabeza de Manzaneda – is located in the Macizo Central. As are virtually untouched nature reserves, such as the Natural Park O Invernadeiro, the valley of the River Návea or the Souto de Rozabales, a forest of centuries-old chestnut trees.

In the land of O Bolo, the spectacular canyon of the River Bibei, with vineyards on a slope as steep as 50% and where the majestic Baroque shrine of As Ermidas stands. And in the middle of Ribeira Sacra, Montederramo with its monastery and its enigmatic "bidueiral" – a dense forest of ancient birch trees full of ferns and lichens where, apparently, Blanco Romasanta – the famous Galician werewolf – used to hide.
