O Val de XestosoA living landscape
The Valley of Xestoso is one of the most important areas for cattle farming within the municipality of Monfero. It is located in the mountainous region of the Parque Natural Fragas do Eume and hosts the most authentic landscapes of rural Galicia. Big meadows fenced with hedgerows, lush forests and countless streams make our parish a beautiful place to enjoy nature.
The Valley of Xestoso is surrounded by Serra da Loba, the natural frontier between the provinces of A Coruña and Lugo, where you can admire the view over the territory, and Pena Fesa, the highest point in the
municipality with 712 m. The river Frai Bermuz is the major artery of the valley and the main tributary of the Eume, which hosts along its banks one of the lushest and most virgin forests. In our valley, with a lively primary sector, you can admire traditional crafts and try delicious products of the region, the most renowned of which is the local grelo, a type of turnip sprout.
