GEO-DESTINATION

Manzaneda - Trevinca

A white Galicia that seems to touch the sky...

Pena Trevinca

High mountain...

Sub-alpine landscapes, above two thousand metres, can only be seen in Galicia in the confluence of the O Eixe, Calva and Segundeira mountain ranges.

A Ponte - A Veiga
The upper limit of the region is reached at the peak of the Pena Trevinca (2,127 m), Pena Negra (2,123 m) and Pena Survia (2,122 m) which crown this extensive protected space linked to the Natural Park of the Sanabria lake (Zamora). Here, an outstanding formation of natural lakes and other elements of glacial origin can be seen. On the west Galicia slope, whose waters drain into the Sil basin, the Xares and the Bibei present beautiful pictures of high mountain rivers during a thaw.
Because of the remoteness of the region it has remained relatively isolated, although its ecological balance is also fragile. One of its increasingly well-known acts has been the conservation of the "Teixadal de Casaio" (yew forest of Casaio). This is a small group of three hundred centuries-old yew trees which form a forest which is unique in Europe. Another one is the existence of a pair of golden eagles, an important element in the region's bird life.
