  • -The stone do Hío is made of a single piece of granite, is Baroque, and excels in the the lightweight and stylized resulting as well as its great ornamentation. In the you can discover, carved, scenes that refer to the expulision of Adam and Eva de el Paraíso, also scenes of purgatory and, at the top, the descent of Christ from the cross (that is, without a doubt, his most prominent part). -Date of construction seems to be the year 1872 and in my opinion is the most beautiful stone has ever seen (and I have certainly seen many in my life). -LOCATION: located in the Pontevedra parish of Hio (municipality of Cangas de Morrazo) in a place known as Igrexario., in the square where there is the Romanesque church of San Andrés, beside it. The GPS coordinates are: N 42.270447 and W 8.829633. You can access by car to the same stone and there is there same parking area. The distance to Cangas de Morrazo is 4-5 Km and to Vigo and Pontevedra the same distance there are practically, about 30 Km. From its location Gets a nice view of the town of Aldan and its beach, located in the ría de Pontevedra. The visit to the stone can also be leveraged to come to Cabo Home which is a & Km, from where the view is fantastic as the Cíes Islands you can see very well (is the point closest to them) and also the island of Ons. -My impression: I was repeatedly on this site; the last last March. The stone is more beautiful than I know, hence my highest rating, and all those who do not know and find the area recommend that approach up there in addition to the beauty of this work is in a nice area allowing you to enjoy the views. It is easily accessible, parked to the side and of course your visit is free. A highly recommended visit.
