Monte Aloia

The peace of nature

The Aloia knows that it is attractive, set as it is in an area touched by a benign climate and exuberant nature. A green mountain which also has solid roots set in the granite. Throughout its history it has been put to defensive, religious, forestry and recreational use. It was the first Natural Park in Galicia, and here it is, in complicity with the river, which, at its feet, begins to say its goodbyes before giving itself up to the sea.

Forest House - Monte Aloia
The hills of O Galiñeiro, which rises up as a small hill range on the coast, starts from a height of less than one hundred metres and ascends to 629 metres at the peak of San Xián. The hill dominates the landscape, described as an observation point over the Miño. All the streams that flow from the Aloia seek the Miño valley in a short but rough journey, an indication of their milling past.
The location of the Park in one of the most densely populated areas of Galicia and the north of Portugal provides it with great environmental education possibilities. Thus, the house built by the Tui forestry expert Rafael Areses in 1921 is now used as a Visitors’ Centre. On clear days the panoramic views from the Aloia will not fail to please. This is an area closely linked to open-air leisure activities, especially hill-walking. It is included in the network of routes throughout O Baixo Miño, which runs to here from the city of Vigo.
