  • Easy route (from O Fieiro). Thanks to the gps, it is easy to reach the small municipality. The starting point is a car park situated right at the entrance, so it is easy. The route runs through well-defined land and without complications, provided East dry, and not to mention that it is a mountain, and therefore it is recommended to do minimally equipped (essential to bring water) there is the possibility of doing two routes, one slightly longer than the other. Once at the top, the views are spectacular. I recommend getting a little tired climbing Monte Pindo, and relax afterwards in the Carnota Beach

  • In December, we decided to make the ascent to Monte Pindo with some friends who had already made it a few times (and repeated almost every year). We slept overnight in a cottage in the area called Santa Uxía. In the morning we headed to the mountain, which is known as Olimpo Celtic, perhaps because of the abundant number of legends referring to this magical area. We leave the car parked behind the Church of O Pindo, where there is a sign marking the most important points of the route. We started the walk right by where is the sign that marks the Monte Pindo. By the way, you'll find numerous loose beads on the road, or requiring appropriate footwear. We were also provided with snacks and plenty of water, because between ascent and descent you can take around 4-5 hours, depending on the way in which you are and stops that you do. At the beginning is a path marked by a few low walls, quite irregular, and with some slope, especially at the end. Time is reached or PEDRULLO, where are the remains of a medieval fortification, apparently, the fortress of SAN XURXO, and looting were abundant at that time. As I've read, other strengths could have, but already there are no remains of them today. During the entire route you can appreciate the infinity of bowling which led to the erosion of the granite, causing curious formations which probably gave rise to numerous myths and legends. In addition, the views of the environment are impressive. After a steep slope is reached an area fairly flat in which you can see the remains of a tungsten mine. There are streams forming small pools where you can put your feet or admire the local fauna, as the. It is also likely that you see wild horses during the walk. In this area is so-called Warrior of the PINDO, an imposing figure whose history says that it protected the Queen Lupa. Then chop the way again but it is worth because we saw the famous dwarf Oaks (Quercus lusitanica), which appear to be very limited and they were miraculously saved from several fires that suffered the area. This species, apparently, you can see also in the South of Spain and Morocco. The Association MONTE PINDO fight to ensure that the area is declared a Natural Park and thus protect this and other species, put an end to the vandalism and fires, etc. We saw quite a few brands that let the last fire in the area, a penalty... After the last effort we reach the Summit, where is located the PEDRA DA MOA, who has excavated natural hollows of erosion (pious). Reported to have the remaining accumulated after the storms in these natural cups water has many properties. Other stories recognize this as usual place in the magical rituals of the area. From here there are spectacular views of the surrounding area but also very windy, take warm clothes. Finally the climb took us an hour and forty five minutes, making several brief stops, only a few minutes, to drink and little else. Once at the top, guarecidos behind a stone, we ate snacks. After half an hour we begin the descent, which took us an hour and twenty, virtually non-stop. You should go concentrate on the ground because it is very irregular. We took the car and headed to the beach of CARNOTA in order to throw us a while on his clear and fine sand to rest and recharge, eating more than we have been, we could also see a beautiful sunset.

  • It is a somewhat difficult in its home path, especially if it's hot, since it is a slope of 0 to 1,000 m in walking distance, but it is worth a lot. While you upload the views are beautiful, but when you already do Summit and see everything it covers, it is simply spectacular.
