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.
