mailto:?subject=Content from Tourism of Galicia: MONTE FARO&body=I recommend you read the information MONTE FARO extracted from the Tourism of Galicia site on page https://www.turismo.gal/recurso/-/detalle/16834/monte-faro?langId=en_US%26tp=1%26ctre=9
The shrine and recreation area of Monte Faro (1,187 metres) crowns the summit, from which there are
extensive views of the four Galician provinces. The peaks of this mountain range are smooth and almost
flat, and due to its location on the Dorsal de Galicia they receive abundant rain, and snow some years.
On the slopes the indigenous forests are a highlight of the landscape, traditionally shaped by cattleraising
and agricultural activities. Between the fields there are good examples of oak woods, with very
impressive trees in some areas.
The town of Chantada is on the N- 540 (Lugo-Ourense) road, and from there the CG 2.1 Monforte de Lemos-Lalín crosses the northern part of the mountain range.
