Birds, wine, chestnuts and strawberry trees
Years ago the Miño descended in rapids through a large and tight valley with a gentle climate. On its slopes farming developed that was dedicated to the cultivation of wine - a place certainly attractive for the settlement of monasteries and villages that today represent a great historical, artistic and cultural heritage.
Currently the river descends calmly tamed by several reservoirs, but both slopes conserve vast forests of chestnut and oak, in which the strawberry tree is also an important species, which gives an idea of the area's fine climate. Depending on the position and altitude, there is a mosaic of forests and vineyards where picturesque villages and numerous crags help diversify the landscape.
