Description

The shrine and recreation area of Monte Faro (1,187 metres) crowns the summit, from which there are extensive views of the four Galician provinces. The peaks of this mountain range are smooth and almost flat, and due to its location on the Dorsal de Galicia they receive abundant rain, and snow some years.
On the slopes the indigenous forests are a highlight of the landscape, traditionally shaped by cattleraising and agricultural activities. Between the fields there are good examples of oak woods, with very impressive trees in some areas.

Access

The town of Chantada is on the N- 540 (Lugo-Ourense) road, and from there the CG 2.1 Monforte de Lemos-Lalín crosses the northern part of the mountain range.
