Description

Would you like to find somewhere where traditional customs still survive? Then this is the place for you. Like hidden jewels nestling between the mountains you'll find the structures known as 'pallozas': stone houses with pre-Roman origins. It's easy to imagine how for centuries that inhabitants of these lands have helped to conserve formations of glacial and fluvial origin, forests and pastures. What animals can you find there? This Reserve is an important space for the survival of some species such as capercaillie and the brown bear. What's on offer in the Biosphere Reserve? You can enjoy activities like mountaineering or hiking. If you choose the latter, you'll find trails like those of Tres Obispos and Campa da Braña, old Roman roads that are perfect for exploring this nature area. And as a curiosity, this place is home to the only marble Romanesque church existing in Spain.
