Description

Cabezoás is one of the most popular lookout points along the Ribeira Sacra, in an area with an abundance of excellent observation platforms.

Located at an altitude of 700 metres at the side of the road, facing a meander in the river known as Coto das Boedas, there is a vertical drop of over 400 metres from the top of the granite outcrop down to the river. This is one of the deepest points of the Sil Canyon.

At the lookout point there is a wooden walkway with a viewing platform that emphasises the vertiginous drop down to the river. It is surrounded by the typical vegetation of the area, such as chestnuts, oaks and broom.
