The rocks of the eagles
South of Galicia and bordering Portugal is the Baixa Limia-Serra do Xurés Natural Park, the brother of the Peneda-Gerês National Park in Portugal. Together, they constitute a vast protected natural area that forms the Gerês-Xurés Transborder Biosphere Reserve.
Bisected by the Lima river, the granite massif is a determining factor in a landscape dominated by rocky outcrops and the deep valleys that make up the various mountains of the natural park. In the low-lying areas, small villages surrounded by crops and small forests give off great beauty and are home to interesting bird populations.
