Serra do Xurés Natural Park
The granite stone and the viewing palette of the 30,000 hectares covered by the Baixa Limia- Xurés Natural Park stand out in a landscape that combines rugged and gentle mountain ranges with an average altitude of over 1,000 metres.
It is the largest of the six Galician natural parks. The Xurés area joins the boundaries of Portugal and Galicia with the Peneda- Gerês National Park, forming a cross-border area of 267,958 hectares, declared a Gerês Transboundary Biosphere Reserve in 2009.
A variety of flora stands out in this natural area, with more than 807 species, 117 of which are endemic, such as the lily of the Xurés. In addition, it has a great diversity of fauna, with about 150 species of singular birds, such as the autochthonous bovine, called “cachena”.
