The park begin in Ourense and when it crosses the line separating it from Portugal, it becomes the Parque Peneda-Gerés... Here the forests know no borders.
Maybe that's why these are the lands of the Couto Mixto, a territory that never belonged either to Spain or to Portugal, and whose inhabitants chose their nationality they wanted on their wedding day.
A world of big trees, wolves, roe deer and wild horses that 2,000 years ago was already crossed over from north to south along the Via Nova built by the Romans to link Astorga and Braga.
The legions no longer pass through here but, instead, you can find lovely scenery in the towns and roads of the park. Wonders such as the A Fecha waterfalls, or amazing villages such as Casola, built on land with a 20% slope. And, also, unexpected findings such as "Cachena" cows, a small breed with huge horns.
