Description

In Baamonde there is one of the smallest chestnut tree of those catalogued in Galicia, just 12.5 metres tall. Its trunk has a hollow in it  more than two metres high. Local artist Víctor Corral carved a chapel dedicated to the Virgin of the Rosary into the hollow, which is now protected by a metal grille.
