Description

The banks of the Sil gorge plunge down some 500 metres to the river. The gorge is of great geological interest, in part because it  contains ollo de sapo gneiss (toad’s eye), which was given this name by the Galician geologist Isidro Parga Pondal because of its blue- violet quartz pyroclastic deposits.
