What to see and do in O Cádavo

A Fraga da Marronda

The Fraga de A Marronda is an exceptional example of Galician autochthonous forest in O Cádavo, in a perfect state of conservation that occupies an area of more than six hundred hectares. Hundreds of species of trees and bushes coexist there with a spectacular fauna, whose protagonists are the wild boar, the roe deer, the fox, the sparrow hawk, the caudal eagle, the crow and the partridge.

This impressive forest is also a scenic and visual treasure that gives us pictures that change with the seasons. While the intense green of the chlorophyll of the leaves dominates everything in the spring and summer, the yellow of the underlying layer of pigments appears in the autumn and the cold penetrates the branches in the winter that dawn white when the snow reaches these latitudes.
