Description

Cano dos Mouros is a 287-metre hill and the site of a castro settlement of the same name, located here as it was an excellent vantage point for monitoring both the coast and movements on land, set between two larger, neighbouring settlements, A Cabeciña and Chavellas.

Today its defensive location on a steep hillside makes it a natural viewing point for admiring a large stretch of the Oia coastline.

With free grazing livestock, a common sight in the A Groba mountains, and the pine groves that are a feature of this landscape, the mountain vistas combined with sweeping views of the Atlantic cannot fail to impress.
