You begin the day with a good breakfast consisting of homemade products, in order to then set off, following our guide, each in their own car, towards other fantastic forests: to the east, the oak grove of Cruzul, to the west, the copse of Agüeira. Depending on your preferences and interests, you can decide how far into both forests you wish to go, but always following the guide’s wise recommendations. The forest of Cruzul is in itself a rarity, for oak groves are not typical of humid lands such as Galicia’s; and in addition, the trees, timorous, stand so close to each other that it seems as though they do not want you to get to know them, as if they trying to block the entrance into the forest. Could it be an enchanted forest? The owls and toads no doubt contribute to making you feel like you are in the heart of a magic forest. Do not be surprised if you come across an elf or a witch!
With sadness you leave the oak grove of Cruzul in order to head towards the nearby copse of Agüeira. In this case you may follow the trails created by the local inhabitants to gather chestnuts and other treasures available in this forest. You can see how huge ancient chestnut trees, that rise out of the forest to catch the sun’s rays, mix with younger, stubbier and wider chestnuts, ready to serve the people who live in the area. This forest does not only speak of its flora and fauna, but also of its close and conspiratorial bond with man.
To end your adventure searching for bears, wolves, elves and chestnuts, we recommend that you visit Gota a Gota, a traditional liqueur factory.
