Description

Half the space belongs to the alder trees, willows and ash trees, along with other indigenous and reforestation trees. The forest borders the banks of the Cabe, in the Sil basin, from the mountains of O Courel to the plains of Monforte de Lemos. It also encroaches on many of its tributaries which form part of the protected river network, including the Carabelos, the Cinsa and the Mao.
The variability of the territory’s climate also results in a variety of scenery, as, for example, the infrequent sight in Galicia of a frozen river, like that of the Cabe beneath the Puente Viejo de Monforte de Lemos. Bridges and beautiful small mills are part of the area’s heritage, along with noble pazos, wine cellars among vineyards and religious art.
