Natural Park O Invernadeiro

Not to be Missed

Permission for access must be sought in advance and all trips must be made on foot along set routes. Group visits can be arranged for a minimum of five people. The nature workshop of Ribeira Grande and the activities, it offers are highly recommended for school groups and other collectives.

Ampliar
It is a unique experience, isolated in nature and covering the wolf’s extensive hunting grounds. On some of these routes a surprising glacial cirque can be seen and also several waterfalls, such as the Arcos. Of special interest in the Ribeira Pequena is the enclosure route which takes us to the area where deer and other ungulates live in semi-liberty. The stars of the Park are the deer, mountain goat, bucks, chamois and the mouflons. They inhabit enclosures which facilitate control of the population and give visitors one of their most pleasant memories.

Central Massif

O Invernadeiro is the heart of a vast, practically unpopulated mountain region. The highest peaks are found on the Queixa mountain range, where the Manzaneda mountain station stands at 1,782 metres, and the San Mamede mountain range (1,619 m). The region has abundant rain and snow falls, but also significant seasonal periods of drought.

From A Proba de Trives we can ascend to the Manzaneda winter station, whose many tourist options mean that activity is not just limited to the ski season. It is the starting point of several hill walking routes in search of ancient glacial activity in the mountain. We can also opt to continue on to Celeiros, the municipal capital of Chandrexa de Queixa.

There are two possibilities on the other slope of the massif. On the one hand, in the Vilariño de Conso municipality, we find the enclaves of Pradoalbar, where the river fills the valley with great beauty, and Chaguazoso, where a spectacular glacial moraine and the river Cenza waterfall can be seen.

Halfway up the mountain there are extensive tree-covered areas. Indigenous forests of great botanical interest, with their mix of Atlantic and Mediterranean species like the common oak and the Pyrenean oak. One of the most curious forests is the Bidueiral de Montederramo, covering some 250 hectares in the municipality of Gabín, brought about by the need for this wood of the formerly numerous zoqueiros (craftsmen making clogs) and carpenters in the area.

On the other hand, there is the river Bibei gorge in O Bolo. This photograph par excellence is framed by the baroque shrine of As Ermidas overhanging the mountain between the hillside grapevines and olive groves, both good indications of climate. Here we can find excellent examples of the terraces used to overcome the problem of the steep drop. The river took part in and also resisted this long history of humanization which started in ancient times, as is seen by the solid Roman bridge of Bibei, still able to support the weight of modern traffic.
