The apparent soft relief of the Macizo Central contrasts sharply with the surroundings. Less travelled deep valleys open up to host notable habitats in which stark scrubland, forests and cliffs stand out. Its climatic contrasts are striking, from the harshness of the peaks to the softness of the lower areas, which all offer a wide variety of environments.
Chestnut groves, with ancient trees, are some of the most interesting forest formations in Galicia as regards both nature and culture.
