Description

There are extensive views of the Valdeorras area from the Barranco Rubio lookout point. At an altitude of around 800 metres, it is located on a steep hillside above the Sil valley.

The county of Valdeorras is bordered by the Cereixido mountains to the north, whose heights match those of the O Courel range, with which it merges.

The views to the south from Barranco Rubio are wide sweeping and take in important sights such as the towns of A Rúa and Petín, the San Martiño reservoir on the River Sil and extensive vineyards planted to take advantage of the beneficial climate in the valley.
