Description

The region significantly called Terra of Montes is formed by midmountain landscapes, of which the O Candán mountain range is one of the most extensive. The maximum mountain height reached in the space is no more than one thousand metres, but its average height is enough to give it its own singular personality among the mountains of the Dorsal de Galicia.
From here spring the Lérez and Umia rivers and several tributaries of the Deza. The summits are dominated by the vegetation of the tickets and wild rock plants. These are spaces of open horizons and few villages, but with good examples of popular architecture Galicia’s artistic heritage, including the monastery of Aciveiro, converted into a hotel-monument
