The mountain of A Fracha is a forest park with a recreation area and numerous designated walking paths classified according to their difficulty. The lookout point affords views of the Pontevedra estuaries and part of the Vigo estuary.

It has particularly fine views of the city of Pontevedra, on the banks of the Lérez, just before it reaches the sea. From A Fracha the whole city with its varied neighbourhoods can be seen.

The surroundings are typical of the coastal mountains of the Rías Baixas, with steep hillsides whose lower reaches are covered in forests and rocky scrubland at the mountaintops.
