The San Roque peak is one of the most popular outdoor spaces for locals to enjoy their free time. At 353 metres, it affords spectacular views of the Viveiro estuary area, including the ports of Viveiro and Celeiro (one of Galicia’s most important ports) and the Covas beach.
At the mouth of the Landro river there are extensive wetlands of great ecological importance, extending the estuary and merging into the Cantabrian Sea on this rugged, windswept stretch of the coast. The chapel of San Roque overlooks the sea, and acts as a reference point for sailors. It is mentioned in a traditional Galician song, Catro vellos mariñeiros (Four old sailors): “Boga mariñeiro, imos para Viveiro, xa se ve San Roque” (Row, row seaman, we're going to Viveiro, you can see San Roque).
