Description

Before finally flowing into the sea after the Viveiro bridges, the Landro reduces its speed in successive meanders that, five kilometres upstream to Landrove, are still influenced by the tides. From the lookout point of San Roque (375 m) one can admire a good part of Gándaras and the Ría de Viveiro, with the sea and mountain as the main attractions in an ecstasy of greens and blues.
Apart from the above mentioned wetland, the river course takes in close to sixteen kilometres inland and the area around its small tributary, the river Bravos. It is listed as one of north Galicia’s best salmon rivers, and the quality of its waters even permit the existence of a viable community of river mussels. Luxuriant forests line the river banks, containing some fine eucalyptus trees, which were introduced into the area many years ago (See National Monument Souto da Retorta).
