Monte Branco

Monte Branco
The Monte Branco is a giant of sand and the watchtower of the Ponteceso landscape. It is named for being covered with sand that rises on the slope of the Hill, brought by the winds from the Southwest. From the lookout, you will be able to see the estuary of the river Anllóns, which creates a beautiful landscape of the Corme and Laxe estuaries. There, it is easy to see the shellfish gatherers in search of the famous cockle. There are several hiking trails that run along the banks of the river and important features in the area such as the house where the writer Eduardo Pondal was born or the Pedra da Serpe, a rock of granite with a winged snake carved in it.
Access
To access it from Ponteceso, take the motorway Corme bound. As you reach Cospindo, take the detour on your left facing the Balares Beach.
