As Pontes de García Rodríguez - A Coruña

43º 30' 46.7" N - 7º 49' 19.4" W


At 752 metres, Monte Caxado is the highest point of the A Faladoira range, as well as being one of the highest points in the province of A Coruña.

O Caxado is a lovely, peaceful spot, with 360o views of the surrounding low ranges and hills, such as A Coriscada and Bustelo, and the high O Xistral range in the distance. On a clear day you can see as far as the northern coast of Galicia.

The rolling landscape, with its rounded hilltops, extends as far as the eye can see. The vibrant tones of the scrubland and pines that grow despite the cold winters bring colour to the landscape and contrast with the distinctive radar and communications station that sits atop Monte Caxado.
