Barbanza mountain range

Back to Galicia tours

A route for the lovers of natural and wild landscapes through the mountain range that overlooks the western coastal facade of Galicia. On our journey we will come across wild horses grazing in these mountains of megalithic landscapes, petro glyphs, dolmens and ancient settlements.

The Barbanza mountain range runs and dominates the north shore of the Ría de Arousa, the largest of the rías (estuaries) of Galicia. It is very characteristic for its plateaus with wild cattle, mainly horses and cows, which cross at will on the many tracks and paths we will go through. These mountains are source of the river Pedras, which in its descending course forms small waterfalls and natural rock pools where we can take dip.

Castro de Barona should be a mandatory visit, one of the best-preserved ancient settlements in Galicia and one of the very few located at sea level. This settlement was highly defensive given its strategic position located on a small stone peninsula attached to the mainland by a sand isthmus. This location is strongly fortified and within it 20 ancient circular plan homes remain.
