This experience takes place in the midst of the spectacular landscapes of the O Cando sierra, which form a mountainous massif that extends along the central border of the Pontevedra Province with Ourense.
This area is of great environmental and scenic interest, still revealing signs of a culture from a different time, all thanks to a place that has hardly changed. A large part of this culture is closely linked with the wolf, previously much feared in these mountains, and the centre of a wonderful heritage. It is surrounded by legends and stories, as well as tangible signs of its existence - foxos do lobo (ditches for wolf hunting) and chozos (stone constructions for livestock protection), etc.
Added to all this is the precious natural world (fervenzas or waterfalls, fluvial beaches, etc.) and heritage (Tourón archaeological area, bridges) of this region.
The whole of this experience centeres on the wolf's presence in the mountain ranges of O Cando and O Suído.
There was a time in which it was still common to find wolves here: the legends and tales about this animal date from this time. On occasion, it was hunted in the well-preserved foxos do lobo, which you can still see in one of the sections of the hiking route PRG-109 (As Almiñas e o Foxo do Lobo).
Many of the images carved into the rock in the archaeological area of Tourón in Ponte Caldelas also have to do with hunting.
The Ruta dos Arrieiros, which also boasts an important tradition, passes through this archaeological area as a joining path between the coast and the inland mountains of Rías Baixas. It used to be a trade route but is now destined for tourism.
Immerse yourself fully in the charming natural surroundings by selecting accommodation in a local rural tourism establishment.
An experience that takes you deep into the world of the wolf and its legends, surrounded by unspoiled nature that few were able to reach (today tidied up for your enjoyment).
