Ecloxitas na zona do Couce do Penido, declarado recentemente como Geosite polo IGME

Geological route of Penidos

In partnership with the Council of Ortigueira, in this route in Serra da Capelada we find the largest deposit of eclogites on the planet. Eclogites originate in the ocean at more than 100 km depth and often bear diamonds, formed as a result of the heavy sea pressure. You will visit the spectacular Pozo do Inferno and the Macizo dos Penidos where you can also admire the beautiful panoramic views over the Ortigueira estuary.

The route has medium difficulty, but it is advisable to wear comfortable shoes.
