Mount Faro

The chapel and recreational area of Mount Faro (1,187 m) top its peak, offering sweeping views of all four Galician provinces.

The peaks of these mountains are rounded and slightly flat and, owing to their location in the Dorsal Galega range, they see heavy rainfall and, some years, snowfall.
Native forest formations on their sides are an important part of the landscape, traditionally moulded by farming activity. Excellent oak tree specimens, very large in some areas, can still be seen on this farming land.

Don't miss!

In mid August and early September, the renowned Mount Faro pilgrimage is celebrated around the chapel.
