More than 11 thousand hectares of land comprise the Capelada Mountains, a place of magical beauty in the region of Ortegal that has been noted for incredible views from the viewpoints Vixía de Herbeira and Chao do Monte. Also, for having the highest cliffs in continental Europe, for guaranteeing the best routes in the autonomous community of Galicia and for showing the genuine freedom with which the semi-wild horses graze in the area.

The Capelada Mountains is an unmissable place. A geological formation that stands out for the rocky outcrops that date back, according to experts, to the separation of the continents or Pangea.
